Expert witness testimony by vocational evaluation consultants is becoming increasingly common in litigation involving claims of loss of employability and earning capacity. This well-established practice clearly reflects the practical value of documented opinions from respected experts in this highly specialized field.
Grounded in extensive research and precise analysis, expert opinions provide objective, quantifiable measures of vocational damages suffered. Experience continues to show vocational evaluations to be persuasive to the court and effective in facilitating equitable solutions.
These benefits become clear in the context of typical litigation scenarios where vocational evaluation experts are not called as witnesses.
In practical terms, "expert opinions" such as these leave substantial room for interpretation. Even using guidelines issued by judges, juries are left to translate generalities into personal terms, often resulting in awards that are unacceptable to one or both parties, with no objective standard for resolution.
In all cases, effective use of vocational evaluation experts in litigation depends on credibility and experience.
