Instructed by the claimant to review and comment on an expert report assessing the loss of dependency arising from the death of his wife, with whom the claimant ran a photography business.

Instructed to review and comment on an expert report assessing the claimant’s loss of earnings following a car accident. In order to assist with negotiations with the defendant’s insurance company, we prepared alternative calculations of the claimant’s loss of earnings. The case was complicated by the fact that the claimant provided services exclusively to a family business which had recently ceased a previous trade and was in the middle of a three-year development project to open a children’s adventure farm. Following our work the claimant accepted an offer made by the insurer.
