Douglas H. Sell, Jr. / Economic Damages Consultant ::::
Case Synopsis: Plaintiff was severely injured in an accident and, as a result of injuries sustained, made a claim for lost earnings and future medical care expenses. Plaintiff’s injuries were so severe, medical experts opined that the plaintiff had a reduced life expectancy; only eight additional years from the date of the incident. Plaintiff’s economic expert prepared a report calculating an earnings loss of nearly $1 million from the time of the incident through the plaintiff’s anticipated work life, which was an additional 30 years from the date of the incident. Plaintiff’s expert also prepared financial adjustments to the proposed future medical care expenses, which were estimated to be incurred for an additional eight years, based on the previously mentioned life expectancy opinion.
