Personal Injury Claims St. Louis: Wage Loss Calculation for Settlement Purposes

Many personal injury attorneys and lawyers want to know: How can we  determine wage loss calculations in order to settle personal injury claims?

Many times personal injury claims are settled before the case goes to court. Most of the time attorneys do not engage an expert until closer to the trial date and are therefore trying to negotiate a settlement without any good wage loss calculations.

If the attorney or lawyer has detailed information on the historical wages, benefits and other factors about the case -- typically a financial expert can determine a value of the lost wages.

Contact your expert and see if they would consider doing some preliminary calculations for settlement purposes.  Maybe you can negotiate a lower fee or fixed rate for this service. Having a financial expert review the documents, offer suggestions on additional documents to subpoena and then developing a preliminary value can help the attorney and client settle the case without additional fees for trial.
