Illinois Vocational Expert Plaintiff
We specialize in trial preparation. OAS experts have over 15 years of experience and are trial tested. The expert who authors the Vocational Evaluation or Life Care Plan will testify in court. OAS believes that our responsibility as damage experts includes the effective presentation of our opinions in court. Our goal as experts is to educate the jury so that they understand the impact of the client’s injury on the ability to work, the ability to earn money, and the cost of his/her lifetime needs. OAS provides all presentation materials to make the issues completely understandable to a jury.
Our Illinois OAS vocational experts are used in a wide variety of cases. Our expertise can benefit personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, workers’ compensation, matrimonial, age discrimination, and wrongful termination cases.
Many attorneys do not know when they need the aid of a vocational expert. The attorney must consider such questions as:
- What are the consequences of the injuries on the client’s ability to function?
- How will these injuries affect the client’s ability to work?
- Will the client’s ability to earn money be affected?
The answers to these questions will determine the necessity of retaining an OAS vocational expert.
In personal injury cases, attorneys know that they have a “substantial” case if the obstacle of liability can be overcome and if there is sufficient coverage. However, few attorneys are cognizant of how they can document damages in an objective and meaningful way that justifies their demand to the defense or the insurance company.
Illinois OAS vocational experts have been used by attorneys to bridge the gap between medical evidence relating to the disability, and economic reports that project damages into the future. Expertise in the areas of rehabilitation, employability, and earning capacity allow an OAS rehabilitation expert to support and enhance testimony of medical and economic experts, and to educate the jury as to the impact of the injury on a person’s employability and earning capacity.
