How do I prove loss of future earnings?
In Florida, we have an element of damages called loss of wage-earning capacity. What that means is, when you’ve been hurt in an accident, it can actually affect your ability to earn money at your job in the future. If you’re working in a job and you wanted to work til age 62, you might have to stop working at age 50 because of your accident. It’s kind of like when you look at the cost of a house; you make a monthly mortgage payment, but you don’t have to pay that whole sum at once. But at a trial, the jury has to know what the whole sum is because they have to render a fair verdict for your entire life. It’s very important to meet with us because we’ll get you to the right experts to work that claim up and to explain it in simple terms to a jury so that they can see the big picture.
