WSLL Recommends: Determining Economic Damages

The recommended title this month is Determining Economic Damages. Published by James Publishing, Inc., this looseleaf volume with accompanying CD is a litigator's treasure chest. The authors are Gerald D. Martin and Marc A. Weinstein, both highly respected and experienced forensic economists.

This start-to-finish guide is the perfect source for:
  • Determining past and future income loss
  • Adjusting for personal consumption 
  • Computing the value of fringe benefits
  • Converting future losses to their present values
  • Locating an expert
  • Preparing your case and expert for trial 
  • Deposing and cross examining the opposing expert
Also especially helpful for the legal practitioner are the easy-to-use worksheets for estimating case values, checklists for obtaining data and testifying in court, and sample work agreements and letters.

A unique feature is the chapter on authoritative legal opinions from the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. District Court and State Appeals Courts – all annotated by economists.

The accompanying CD, which requires no special software or installation, contains the full text of the printed volume and is keyword searchable by case name, topic or form name. The forms are conveniently formatted in Microsoft Word for easy editing.
