We have extensive experience acting as experts to quantify loss of earnings, benefits and pension arising from personal injury and medical negligence, as well as loss of dependency on earnings in fatal accidents.
Our typical cases involve shareholder directors who are key to their company, the self-employed and other complex and high earners.
We also have a specialism in quantifying losses for professional sports people (particularly footballers) and entertainers whose careers have been limited by injury.
Our experts have acted in some of the largest cases litigated, as well as many of more modest quantum – but all with a need to explain an element of financial loss that goes beyond simple wages or salary.
We frequently provide reports to assist the Court in assessing loss of unusual benefits such as short and long term incentive payments (STIP and LTIP), share options etc.
We have acted in hundreds of cases of pension loss from most of the major final salary schemes that remain, as well as corporate money purchase and private pension arrangements.
Whilst multipliers are a matter for the Court, we are very familiar with the mathematical concepts behind them and the interaction between discount rates and how future loss multiplicands should be assessed for consistency, so can make recommendations accordingly.
In addition, we are very comfortable working with experts from other disciplines who often need to be instructed for issues such as care costs or rehabilitation strategies.
