The Benefits of an Economic Damages Expert Witness

In a civil case, a court may award damages (monetary compensation) to a person injured by another party’s wrongful conduct. When your case requires analysis or testimony in this area, it’s crucial to find an expert witness who is respected and experienced.

Laws mandate three main types of damages:

  1. Compensatory or economic damages, designed to restore what a plaintiff lost because of a defendant’s conduct
  2. Nominal damages, a small amount awarded to a plaintiff who didn’t experience a substantial injury or loss but still suffered an invasion of his or her rights
  3. Punitive damages, which aren’t awarded to compensate the plaintiff for the injury suffered but instead to penalize the defendant for especially egregious conduct (In certain cases, treble and liquidated damages also could be awarded)

Valuation economist experts are concerned with compensatory or economic damages. They are generally involved in the calculation of compensation necessary to restore what a plaintiff has lost or expense a plaintiff will incur as a result of a defendant’s wrongful conduct. Calculating the cost of items such as lost wages, cost of future care and medication costs falls within the expertise of valuation economist experts.
