Size of Case: £100,000 - £500,000
Acting as the expert to calculate the loss of dependency and pension suffered by the husband of an author who died following the failure of an ambulance team to respond to a 999 call within required standards.
Our work involved the quantification of:
• past loss of income dependency to the date of settlement;
• future loss of income dependency; and
• future loss of pension dependency.
The calculations were complicated by the inconsistent nature of wife’s income as this was earned through royalties from existing books and new publications.
Our work was used in negotiations and the matter settled at mediation.
