Personal Injury - Forensic Accounting
- The input of an expert forensic accountant may be necessary if the solicitor is to fulfil his/her duties to his/her client.
- There is clearly a case for using forensic accountants where the claimant was self employed and had a varying pattern of earnings before the accident. For the purpose of the claim, the post-accident profits of the business need to be evaluated;
- Forensic accountants are able to prepare the Schedule of Special Damages, if required;
- Claims for loss of pension are calculated in different ways because of the wide range of pension arrangements that are available. A forensic accountant will be able to assist the claimant to identify their true capital requirements and their true income needs. These may both differ considerably from the amounts that they are eligible to claim.
