Abstract

In the Fall 2007 issue of the Journal of Forensic Economics Ralph J. Brown and Erik L. Olsen outline case law relevant for forensic economics in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death litigation in the State of South Dakota. This note supplements Brown's and Olsen's work by discussing three additional issues of which readers should be aware before practicing forensic economics in the State of South Dakota. These issues are: the statutory pre-judgment interest rate, the required discount rate in workmen's compensation cases, and the statutory increase in compensation in workmen's compensation cases.
