This e-learning course provides an introduction to valuing claims for loss of earning capacity due to ongoing disability flowing from a personal injury.

A reduction in earning capacity is a quantifiable decrease in an injured person’s ability to earn income. This detriment to a claimant’s earning potential is different and separate to any loss of earnings which has already been incurred following an accident. Therefore calculating a loss of earning capacity can be an important and significant head of claim.
