Loss of earnings and pension as a result of wrongful termination and hostile work environment
My damage analysis focused on the the plaintiff's earnings history with a lengthy career working for the City of Boise as well as applying my knowledge of the Public Employees' Retirement System for Idaho (PERSI). The loss calculations involved the plaintiff's remaining statistical work-life expectancy, her inability to reenter the workforce for mitigation purposes, and the reduction in her PERSI defined pension benefit at her fully vested age. The value of healthcare benefits had to be weighed against the cost of Medicare Plan B, which the plaintiff was eligible for and enrolled in.
Loss of past wages and future care services as a result of medical malpractice-misdiagnosis for Nurse
My analysis included the estimation of the plaintiff's pre-incident earnings capacity as an RN offset by her actual mitigating employment. Mitigation included the plaintiff taking additional time away from work to attend graduate school and elevate her earnings ceiling. The loss period concluded when the plaintiff made the choice to attend graduate school and potentially higher paying positions as a Nurse Practitioner or Nursing Instructor. The plaintiff also had significant future life care needs that I presented in today's dollars by estimating her future healthy life expectancy and applying net discount factors to the recommended services.
Past wage loss and future life care services as a result of a motor vehicle accident
My analysis included the calculation of the plaintiff's past wage loss, estimating future loss of earnings as a result of a forced transition to part-time, and the present value of recommended future life care services to make the claimant whole. Various earnings loss scenarios focused on the plaintiff's pre-incident earnings capacity offset by the estimated mitigating part-time work schedule of 25 to 35 hours per week. Statistical work-life expectancy, life expectancy and net discount variables for the presentation of all future cash flows in today's dollars were utilized.
