Economic Damages Valuation: Patent Infringement


A small law firm in Toledo, Ohio retained AEG to calculate economic damages, after a chiropractor invented an orthopedic pillow. The pillow was designed to be placed between a person’s knees while sleeping to reduce back pain. In 2000, the chiropractor was sued by a large national company market patented products, on a claim that they had superior rights to the design through an existing patent.

The suit at hand was a legal malpractice suit where Anderson Economic Group calculated the chiropractor’s lost ability to collect royalty payments from the sale of the orthopedic pillow in the United States.

We prepared an expert report. Patrick Anderson provided deposition testimony about the report. Mr. Anderson also testified in the Court in Toledo. In addition, we provided an analysis of the opposing expert’s report, and questions to be posed to the opposing expert.

After the trial, Anderson Economic Group’s client received a favorable settlement offer.
