Economic loss refers to the financial losses you will have suffered and will suffer in the future because of someone's carelessness or negligence.
Specifically, it includes your lost wages from the time of your incident until the time of your trial. It can include your lost wages that will happen in the future because of your inability to work or your limited ability to continue your employment. It includes all of your medical bills from the time of your injury for the forseeable future.
It includes other financial losses and projected losses that we can calculate and have an expert known as an economist come in and talk to the jury about the value of money today and how that value changes over time.
