Our consideration of the loss of earnings for employed individuals involves a careful consideration of the claimant’s remuneration, including benefits-in-kind such as bonuses and participation in share option schemes. Our advisory work includes assistance with the preparation of schedules and counter schedules of loss.
Our work in relation to self-employed claimants involves a critical appraisal of business financial statements covering the periods before and after the “personal injury” and an assessment of the claimant’s earnings from the business.
Much of our work on high-value claims involves a careful evaluation of future losses where the injured person will not be able to work at full capacity after the personal injury.
It is vital for us to obtain appropriate information at the outset so that we can form an overview of the claim and ensure that early settlement can be reached without significant costs being incurred in court attendance and protracted negotiations.
