NATURE OF CASE: Medical malpractice case involving a birth injury to a male child.
OUTCOME: Settled very favorably just at the commencement of trial.
ATTORNEY: Daniel Powell, Esq., of West, Powell & Glass, Los Angeles represented the child and his parents. He retained Richard Andersen to serve as a Vocational Expert and Ray Schultz, Economist at IBAR, Inc., to render an opinion regarding the child's future loss of earning capacity.
ATTORNEY COMMENT: "Mr. Andersen's vocational evaluation assisted us in quantifying a very young child's future loss of earning capacity. His organized and convincing testimony at deposition substantially increased case value over the MICRA general damage limit."
