Bridging the Gap

Attorneys use BRVA reports to assist in determining the level of damages, with the understanding that the information is based on foundational medical professional opinions. BRVA reports can be used as the groundwork for the subsequent Economists’ report, calculating inflation and other factors, which further increases future-related damages.

In using a BRVA  report, attorneys are able to clearly substantiate their demand, which aids in fast-tracking their case toward settlement. If and when the case moves to trial, attorneys are confident that the BRVA has objectively documented the damages and are thus prepared to testify at trial.


When presenting a personal injury claim, an attorney must often rely on the testimony of physicians and other medical professionals to establish their client damages. Even if a doctor deems a person partially or totally disabled, insurance adjustors and juries are left to determine how the disability impacts the victim economically. This can result in very subjective damages awards.


A vocational expert can minimize or eliminate these subjective assessments by providing objective parameters for quantifying vocational damages. Using data from local job markets and established economic indicators, the expert can provide comprehensive reports that either facilitate settlements or persuade juries of the extent of the victim’s vocational damages.
