Forensic economists are legal damages experts. They are economists and other financial experts who are hired by and consult with attorneys about their cases in litigation, and who occasionally testify in court about their determinations. Generally, Forensic Economists develop opinions about economic losses, that is, legal damages, including such items as:
• Loss of earnings;
• Loss of job-related fringe benefits;
• Loss of financial support;
• Loss of household services (for example, childcare, housework, etc.); and
• Determining present values for Life Care Plans for persons who have been severely injured.
