Lost Earnings


At Vocational Economics, our team of analysts perform both vocational and economic analysis and render a single, synthesized report to assure clear communication of our expert opinions. The road to accomplish this option can take one of many routes, best matched to the needs of the hiring attorney and the specifics of the case:

  • Combined Vocational Economic Analysis by a Single Expert – Many of our experts are cross- trained in both the vocational and economic aspects of the impact of disability on lifetime earnings. Use of a single expert greatly simplifies the testimony at trial, as well as the efforts of the hiring attorney in coordinating deposition and trial schedules
  • Combined Vocational Economic Analysis by Two Experts – Some attorneys prefer to maintain the traditional segregation of duties, keeping two experts for lost earning capacity. Since Vocational Economics employs experts from multiple disciplines, we are able to accommodate this preference, while maintaining the benefits of a single, synthesized analysis.
  • Vocational or Economics Analysis Only – Sometimes attorneys have existing relationships with other economics or vocational experts, and need only to hire an expert of the other discipline. Vocational Economics is happy to accommodate those needs also, adjusting our analysis to concentrate on a single discipline.
