Future Losses Explained

In personal injury cases such as car accideFuture Losses Explainednts, premises liability, product liability, construction accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and slip and falls, one very important concept is that of “future losses”. If your injury has a lasting impact on your life, such that it impacts your ability to work and enjoy life the same way you did before your accident, you have the right to sue for future losses.

The two main components of future losses are that of lost income and future medical expenses. Your personal injury attorney should consult with medical experts, rehabilitation experts, and economic experts in order to determine what affects the lasting impacts of your injury will have on your life.

Middlesex, NJ Personal Injury Attorneys Discuss Lost Income

Lost income refers to the difference in what you would have earned had you not been injured versus what you will likely earn post-injury. In order to determine this, several aspects must be examined.

  • What is the likely timeline for your recovery, how long will your injury affect your ability to earn?
  • What is a person’s expected income with a similar background to yours such as education and age?
  • What are the economic conditions in your specific industry? Would there likely be opportunities for growth and advancement?
  • If you had not been injured, how likely were you to transition to a higher paying job either within your field of employment or without?
  • What are you likely to earn now that you have been injured?

By consulting with financial experts, experienced Middlesex personal injury attorneys hope to answer some of these very important questions, and in doing so, provide you with the best possible lost income compensation.

Monmouth County, NJ Personal Injury Attorneys Discuss Future Medical Expenses

Obtaining an accurate estimate of what your future medical expenses will be as a result of your injury is the next step for your personal injury lawyer. Some important factors to consider are:

  • The likelihood of your condition remaining stable and/or deteriorating
  • How much medical care you are likely to need
  • The expected rise in cost of the medical care you will require
  • How much of those costs you will be responsible for (i.e. the costs that are not covered by your insurance provider)

Proving these factors required expert testimony, and often that testimony will be argued by experts for the plaintiff. Having an experienced Monmouth County personal injury lawyer to consult with, and introduce to the court, the best possible experts is extremely important.
