My 17 (now 18 y/o) daughter was involved in an auto accident just over 1 year ago. She had a fractured foot(2 bones crushed) she still has swelling a year later and has a herniated disc in her neck. She will probably have surgery on her neck this summer. As a result of the injuries she has had to give up dance--she wanted to pursue this as a carreer. How are future lost income damages calculated as she has had 2 part time jobs-just to make spending money-not to support herself-that she was unable to do. She has no "real" work history as she just graduated high school. I am not asking for formulas, amounts, etc., just what kind of information is used to make this determination?
If you are planning on making a claim, have your attorney hire the services of an Expert Forensic Accountant. This area can be quite convoluted and, if done incorrectly by you, you could wind up damaging your child's chances to claim and gain that which rightfully she could have claimed.
