Personal Injury

In personal injury cases, a vocational expert can help determine lost wages and diminution of future earning capacity. Once an individual’s medical restrictions have been determined, our team can provide objective measures of his or her access to the labor market and earning potential. Current labor market data is utilized to determine pre- and post-injury earning potential, further elucidating economic damages arising from an injury.

Marital Dissolution

A vocational expert is often utilized to assist in determining alimony & child support in cases of marital dissolution, or divorce. Reasons to retain a vocational expert in a divorce case include, a spouse is not working, a spouse has no recent work experience, a spouse’s income is significantly less than in the past, a spouse has a disability that may affect vocational success, and so on. For questions of employability and earning capacity, our team can help.
