Personal Injury & Fatal Accident Cases – Lump Sum Awards
Pollock & Galbraith are regularly instructed to produce reports for solicitors across the United Kingdom and give evidence in cases of Personal Injury or Fatal Accident.
Fatal Accidents – calculation of loss of support from earnings before retirement and pension rights after retirement. A complex area where practice differs across the UK and where actuarial input is often valuable. Calculations are made using the conventional ‘expected period of dependency’ approach or on a more exact ‘joint life’ basis.
Cost of Care – calculation of multipliers based on impaired life expectancy. Dr Pollock has a PhD in Medical Statistics and has a particular academic interest in this field.
Valuation of Lost Share Options – where required Pollock & Galbraith can value share related benefits using sophisticated option pricing models.
