The Day in the Life video can help to bring a Jury into your home and depict the difficulties of your daily life.

In order to receive compensation for your lost wages, it is important that you document your time missed from work. Stephen Morse takes a team approach to your case, and will involve many necessary expert witnesses. One expert witness may hire is expert called an Economist to predict the wages that you will lose into the future. Mr. Morse may also hire another expert called a vocational rehabilitation expert who will testify about your ability to work into the future (i.e., if you will be able to work, if you will be able to work the same or a different job, how much you will be able to work, how long you will be able to work, etc.). In combination with the economist, these two expert witnesses will predict how much money you will lose as lost wages into the future.
