Economica's Assessments: Information required to complete a loss of income (personal injury) assessment when the plaintiff is a minor or young adult

We have outlined below the information which we typically require in order to complete a loss of income assessment when the injured person is a minor or young adult (i.e., the person does not have an established career path).

To summarize, we require any information which relates to what the plaintiff’s career path (and income potential) would likely have been if the accident had not occurred; and what it will likely be now, given that the accident has occurred.

In addition to the usual detailed summaries of our economic approach, assumptions, and results, our loss of income reports include an inflation-adjustment graph which can be of assistance in determining an appropriate award for non-pecuniary damages. Also, we provide a table of judgment interest rates which can be applied to “special damages” costs which have been incurred over the pre-trial period.
