Our forensic accountants deal with cases involving business owners, directors, those in partnerships, trade/skilled workers and consultants.
Pension loss elements in claims are usually highly complex. Valuation of quantum loss of earnings in negligence cases, for example, road traffic accidents and fatal accident cases which also includes commercial disputes and professional negligence cases. Additionally, the valuation of loss of pension rights in cases of loss of earnings or fatal accidents.
Pension losses are a key head of damage and we advise on these cases extensively, often as a Single Joint Expert. This has led to us being instructed on pension related cases involving disputes over defined benefit or defined contribution schemes, employers giving incorrect details as to employees’ pension entitlements and loss of the value of pension rights where employees are dismissed or made redundant.
The court uses a specified approach to the calculation of loss of pension rights in order to value the loss of future pension which is then discounted back to the date of the trial or settlement as part of the overall damages to be received. We are very familiar with undertaking these calculations.
