ECONOMIC DAMAGES CALCULATION SERVICES
Calculating economic damages in personal and commercial cases is a complex task that requires deep expertise to help attorneys and claimants construct a credible calculation that will withstand cross examination from opposing counsel, as well as questions from judges and jurors.
Damages calculations can be open to attack if they are overly speculative or fail to meet professional accounting standards. Our skilled team of forensic accounting professionals provide consulting services and expert testimony that are logical, consistent, rooted in evidence and reliant upon independent research and sufficient, relevant data.
At FSS, we are also adept at communicating the story behind the numbers. We know that an expert opinion is most effective when it can clearly communicate even the most complex topics to triers of fact, both via oral testimony and visual presentations of the data.
Our team provides calculations and expert testimony on a broad range of losses in personal and commercial cases, such as:
- Lost profits
- Diminution of value or slow death
- Lost business value
- Lost wages and earnings
- Present value of future medical costs
How we assist attorneys in litigation as consulting experts
Our goal is to provide counsel with peace of mind by reducing the risk that damages calculations will be excluded by the court. We have the skills, knowledge, education, and training to offer opinions that will be accepted by a court of law.
We know that cherry-picking data or ignoring pertinent information allows the possibility of challenges to opinions or the exclusion by the court. We use reasonable and generally accepted methodology that meets the standards of the accounting profession and that is specifically designed to survive challenges.
