Future economic loss—claimant’s prospects and adjustments
(cf s 126 MACA)
Damages may not be awarded for future economic loss unless the claimant first satisfies the court or claims assessor that the assumptions about future earning capacity or other events on which the award is to be based accord with the claimant’s most likely future circumstances but for the injury.The amount of damages for future economic loss that would have been sustained on those assumptions is to be adjusted by reference to the percentage possibility that the events concerned might have occurred but for the injury.If an award for future economic loss is made, the court or claims assessor is required to state the assumptions on which the award was based and the relevant percentage by which damages were adjusted.
