Under Texas law, this type of claim is called "loss of earning capacity." This person had the capacity to earn $__________ based on the R.N. license, but due to the accident the person does not have this capacity any more. The attorney handling this claim would be wise to hire an expert economist to crunch the numbers, because, among other things, this claim needs to be discounted to "present value."
