Lost opportunity is a specific type of damage that is often accompanied by claims for lost wages. Indisputable evidence is critical in a lost opportunity claim, as the basis of such a claim can be subjective. Documentation is instrumental in making a case for lost opportunity credible.
Usually, the potential victim needs to provide evidence that he or she would have received a substantial amount of income at some date in the future. In some cases, a business’s failure to deliver (breach of contract) can cause another business to delay production, which is another scenario in which a lost opportunity claim may be viable.
In these types of cases, a damage expert is required to calculate the value of the lost profits that were predicted. One of two calculations is used by an expert to determine the possible amount of damage, and the number(s) is presented at trial.
A judge or jury may still reject a claim for lost opportunities despite the documentation a victim submits. Because of the difficulty in establishing a claim for related damages, it is important to have the guidance and knowledge of a lost opportunity attorney to help you with your case.
