Accumyn prepared a detailed damage analysis for an employee of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who was severely injured after being struck by a bus while attempting to cross a downtown intersection. The testimony of a medical expert established that the injuries sustained from the accident hastened a pre-existing kidney disease, requiring a premature kidney transplant and reducing the individual’s life expectancy.
Accumyn projected long-term growth for future medical costs and wages from federal government agencies. Accumyn also established the individual’s pre-injury earning capacity and applicable income tax rates and deductions, factoring in the employer’s cost for applicable fringe benefits. Finally, Accumyn calculated the amount necessary to pay future income taxes on the interest earned from the anticipated damage award.
