Fully Using the Deposition Process Can Enhance Reliability of Economic Damages Analysis

Critical Information Can Be Gathered During the Deposition to Ensure an Accurate Economic Analysis, According to Marks Paneth & Shron Video

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - The calculation of damages requires inputs from several sources. Defendants and plaintiffs alike can gain clarity on the individual's economic picture: taking better advantage of the deposition process.

In a video from Marks Paneth & Shron, Josefina V. Tranfa-Abboud, Ph.D., Principal in the Litigation and Corporate Financial Advisory Services, explains how both plaintiffs and defendants can use the deposition to...

  • Learn about reasons for fluctuations in income prior to the incident;
  • Gain insight on work-related expenses;
  • Find out about key aspects affecting other categories of damages.

By engaging an economist early in a case and involving her in the preparation for deposition, the discovery process may be enhanced which, in turn, enhances the reliability of the economic damages analysis.
