Updated: Sep 26, 2022
A. Christine Davis of Financial Evidence Group, A CPA Firm, and Learon John Bird, JD of Bates Group (www.batesgroup.com) have recently collaborated to develop and co-present a CLE program for attorneys entitled Calculating Lost Earnings Damages in Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases for the Continuing Education of the Bar of California.
The learning objectives are:
Learn how to calculate an individual's lost earnings arising from personal injury or wrongful death
Discuss the various components of the financial damages model for income loss
Become informed of the typical information and documents that are useful in calculating the value of lost earnings and related economic harm.
The program is expected to be available to members of the CEB by early August 2021.
A thoughtful and engaging discussion, it addresses the typical information and documents to gather for calculating lost earnings damages, meaningful questions to ponder when assessing damages, various fruitful ways to work with a damages expert, and a case study that highlights the benefits of having a well-presented damages calculation with supported and reasonable assumptions.
About the CEB (www.ceb.com):
CEB was founded in 1947 as a nonprofit program of the University of California to educate veterans returning to the practice of law after service in World War II. It pioneered formal continuing legal education in the state.
It was soon apparent that attorneys were as interested in written material as they were in presentations, an interest that translated into the development of the CEB practice book. From their initial appearance as handouts, practice books evolved into comprehensive, regularly updated, publications.
CEB’s commitment to innovation produced early forays into tape recordings, video productions, telephone programs, and software. The CEB website was launched in 1997; online programs were introduced in 1999. Today, CEB’s resources include a suite of authoritative research, guidance, current awareness, and learning resources.
CEB continues to set the standard for the finest research, writing, and presentation by the top lawyers in the state.
