Non-Pecuniary or Hedonic Damages
Most courts only use the human capital approach to value economic damages someone might have suffered subsequent to an injury or a wrongful termination. This was simple and rational, but we know, that a person's life is not exclusively valued by the ability to earn a living. The simple joys of living, running, hobbies, spending time with loved ones are not captured by the human capital approach. Recognizing these shortcomings, some courts accept a dollar amount and often times this value is substantial.
Our team provides the skill and sensitivity to estimate these damages, see publication
