I have a PhD in economics and 43 years experience as an economics professor. I also have 29 years experience in forensic economics. I use large government databases to create alternative models of earning capacity prior to injury based on the plaintiff’s earning history, demographics, estimates of survival probability, the probability of labor-force participation, employment, hours worked per week and annual earnings — factors which I reduce to present expected value. I then model post-injury earnings based on above variables plus the probability of recovery. It appears that the plaintiff would have a permanent partial disability.
