Details and specs

Damages: Estimating Pecuniary Loss provides a unique approach to blending economic data with case law from civil litigation cases. Each economic principle or assumption is found in cases throughout Canada so counsel will know which economic assumptions judges will accept and which ones they will not.

Damages: Estimating Pecuniary Loss covers all facets of damage quantification and shows how a person's lifetime earnings can be calculated using methods endorsed by judges in the case law. Such calculations are highly relevant to practicing civil litigation attorneys in specialties such as injury, wrongful confinement, imprisonment or assault, contract dispute, business interruption, and matrimonial and labour disputes. The principles are applicable no matter if one is prosecuting or defending a civil litigation action.

The book draws together, into a single resource, data on all facets of damage quantification, including current data not available anywhere else regarding lost income due to disability or sexual assault/ harassment, lost economic opportunity, positive and negative contingencies, statistical estimates of household work, dependency rates, industry profiles, and economic factors affecting the self-employed.

Written with the new practitioner in mind, this is also a valuable resource for lawyers who handle the occasional case, for insurance adjusters and examiners, for judges, and for other forensic experts. A "legal memos" section has been created exclusively for this publication.

Supplements invoiced separately.
