How are future damages calculated in a wrongful death case in Mississippi?
Yes, wrongful death beneficiaries are entitled to recover future damages. I had a wrongful death case, one of the biggest examples of that is the loss of the earning capacity of the deceased. This requires that an economist be hired to calculate those damages in present value. It also requires a lot of times the hiring of a life-care planner to go in and figure out some of these calculations. They can be very tricky and difficult, at least at the time of trial to have admitted into evidence. It’s why it’s important to have an attorney who understands it.
