Presenter: Prof Jane Hutton, The University of Warwick

Abstract/Description:
I frequently provide expert witness reports on estimates of life expectancy, and occasionally on other matters such as side effects of drugs and putatively avoidable deaths.

If a compensation case arises from an injury, which might be caused by medical error or an industrial or traffic accident, the
award will often depend on the expected reduction in life expectancy. I shall discuss approaches to estimating life expectancy when factors such as smoking or alcohol consumption have to be considered as well as the main motivation of the claim. Estimates of effects of injury and life style factors are published in many forms. I will comment on the challenges I have faced, and the solutions I have adopted.
