Victim’s Experts Qualified to Opine re: His Future Wage Loss

A 2008 opinion of the PA Superior Court affirmed a Luzerne County trial judge’s decision in favor of a PA car accident victim. The car crash occurred in Luzerne County when one car turned directly in front of another motor vehicle. A Pennsylvania car accident attorney filed a lawsuit on behalf of his injured client.

At trial, a vocational rehabilitation consultant and an economist provided expert testimony regarding the PA car crash victim’s future wage loss. The defense attorney objected claiming there was insufficient medical testimony to support this evidence.

The Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that the experts were qualified to establish how the PA car crash victim’s injuries prevented him from fully performing his work duties. Novitski v. Rusak, 941 A.2d 43 (Pa. Super. 2008)
