Vocational Expert Services

RSA specializes in assisting plaintiff and defense attorneys in documenting the damages in cases where an individual has been injured by providing objective findings on how the injuries affect a person's ability to work and earn money. This is accomplished by means of an Earning Capacity Evaluation. Additionally, the cost of care required in catastrophic injuries can be detailed in Life Care Plans.

Earning Capacity Evaluation is an evaluation of a plaintiff’s ability to work and earn wages prior to and following an injury that is the subject of litigation. RSA provides an individual-specific analysis to provide objective evaluations of a plaintiff’s earning capacity.  An Earning Capacity Evaluation can be done in any case where the ability to work and earn wages is in dispute. It can also be used in Labor / Employment and Family Law / Marital Dissolution, where the earning capacity of a spouse may be at issue.

RSA Vocational Expert witness testimony and litigation consultation is provided by our experienced, board certified consultant. Jack  has authored vocational opinion reports and life care plans, provided testimony, and consulted on hundreds of cases in many jurisdictions across New England including: New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York. Testimony venues have included
Federal District Courts, Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR)/Social Security Administration, and Workers Compensation Boards/New Hampshire and Vermont

A critical need after the development of an expert witness evaluation is the ability to support and defend the opinions at deposition and trial. RSA is highly experienced in such settings.
