Actuarial Analysis

Actuarial Analysis

What is an Actuarial Analysis?

An actuarial analysis is the calculation of the current value of financial events that either occurred in the past or expected to happen in the future by applying probability. Statistical methods calculate the risk of occurrence of any event, such as the onset of illness, recurrent disease, hospitalization, disability, or death.

Actuaries in the litigation arena play an essential role in civil litigation cases by assisting in the quantification of economic damages.[1]

TD&P experts issuing statements of actuarial opinion (SAOs) are required to adhere to the Society of Actuary’s Code of Professional Conduct, Actuarial Standards of Practice, and Qualification Standards for education, experience, and continuing education.[2] The principal calculations carried out by our experts include the present value of lost past and future earnings, lost pension and other benefits, lost valuable services, and the cost of future care in disputes arising from matters such as:

Personal injury | Wrongful death | Professional negligence | Wrongful dismissal
