Frequently asked questions

What are economic damages?

Economic damage refers to measurable financial losses that an individual, business, or other entity sustains directly from an event or action. These damages are quantifiable in monetary terms and can include lost income, decreased profits, property damage, medical expenses, and other costs.

For example, if a business has to close for repairs after a storm, the economic damage would include lost income and repair costs, among others. Or if an individual misses work due to an injury caused by negligence, their economic damages could cover lost wages, medical bills, and other quantifiable losses stemming from the injury.

The key factors are that such damages must be tangible, quantifiable losses that can be clearly attributed to the specific action in question.

What is non economic damages?

Non economic damages refer to intangible losses that cannot be easily quantified in monetary terms, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of companionship. Unlike economic damages, they lack a clear monetary value.

These subjective, non-monetary losses are meant to compensate an injured party for harms that have no calculable dollar value. For instance, the impact of an injury on a person’s well-being and quality of life.

What is economic damages assessment?

Economic damages assessment involves analyzing and quantifying financial losses resulting from an injury, accident, or other harmful event. Economists or forensic accountants often perform it as expert witnesses in legal disputes.

The goal is to accurately measure past and future economic harm to an individual or business in monetary terms.

The resulting dollar amounts provide critical evidence in settlement negotiations and court proceedings when determining liability and compensation.

What types of cases require economic damages assessment?

The following are some of the most popular cases that require the help of an economic damages expert:

  • Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
  • Wrongful Termination and Other Employment Matters
  • Breach of Contract
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Product Liability
  • Unfair or Wrongful Competition
  • Predatory Pricing
  • Misappropriation of Trade Secrets
  • Intellectual Property Infringement
  • Insurance Claims
  • Business Interruption or Destruction
  • Fraud Investigations
  • Business Valuation
  • Marital Dissolution (Divorce) or Partnership Dissolution
How are economic damages calculated?

These are calculated by estimating the monetary losses suffered by an injured plaintiff as a result of an accident, injury, or other legally compensable event. Economic experts often analyze an injured plaintiff’s work history, medical records, and financial documents to arrive at reasonable estimates for losses.

What is the “but-for” principle in the assessment of such damages?

The “but-for” principle serves as a guiding framework for determining the financial impact of a specific event or action. Essentially, it asks the question: What would have been the economic outcome “but for” the incident in question? In other words, it helps quantify the difference between the actual financial situation and the hypothetical scenario where the event did not occur. This principle is crucial in legal and financial contexts, aiding professionals in calculating accurate compensation or restitution figures.

How important is an economic damages expert witness in such cases?

A skilled economic damages expert witness brings a level of credibility, analysis, and specialized knowledge that is invaluable to both the court and the parties involved. They assess complex financial data, to calculate and present accurate assessments of economic losses. This testimony aids judges and juries in comprehending intricate financial intricacies, enabling them to make informed decisions.

How do economic damages experts work with attorneys?

Economic damages experts play a crucial role in assisting attorneys in legal cases involving financial compensation claims. They provide their specialized knowledge and expertise to help attorneys assess and quantify the economic losses suffered by their clients.

The collaboration between economic damages experts and attorneys typically begins with a thorough review of the case facts, including relevant financial documents, testimonies, and other evidence. The expert then applies their economic knowledge and analytical skills to evaluate the impact of the alleged wrongdoing or event on the client’s financial well-being.

They also consider future losses and present their findings in a clear and concise manner, often in the form of expert reports or testimony.

Attorneys rely on the expertise of economic damages experts to strengthen their legal arguments and support their client’s claims for financial compensation.

Can economic damages include loss of business reputation?

Yes, they indeed can. While economic damages typically refer to financial losses incurred as a result of wrongful actions or negligence, the impact of a damaged reputation can have significant financial implications for businesses. A tarnished reputation can lead to a loss of customers, decreased sales, and, ultimately, a decline in revenue.

In legal cases, if it can be proven that a party’s actions directly caused harm to a business’s reputation, the court may ask to compensate for the financial losses suffered. These damages can cover immediate losses and future projected losses due to a damaged reputation.

Are punitive damages considered economic damages?

No, they are not. Economic damages are typically awarded to compensate a party for financial losses resulting directly from an injury or harm caused by another party’s actions.

On the other hand, punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant for their reckless or intentional conduct and to deter others from engaging in similar behavior. Punitive damages go beyond compensating the victim and aim to impose a financial penalty on the wrongdoer.

Can economic damages be mitigated by the plaintiff?

Mitigation involves the plaintiff making reasonable efforts to minimize the impact of the defendant’s actions on their finances. This can include actively seeking alternative employment, reducing expenses, or exploring other income-generating opportunities.

The principle of mitigation is based on the idea that the plaintiff should not be entitled to recover damages that could have been reasonably avoided. However, the plaintiff is not expected to take unreasonable or burdensome measures to mitigate their losses.

Ultimately, the extent to which economic damages can be mitigated by the plaintiff will depend on the specific circumstances of the case, the availability of alternative options, and the reasonableness of the efforts made by the plaintiff.
