Description

Wrongful death and personal injury actions; future wages presumption. Creates a rebuttable presumption in actions for the personal injury or wrongful death that a person who, at the time of the injury or death, was an infant or was at least 18 years of age but less than 24 years of age and was enrolled as a full-time student would have earned wages during his lifetime at the federal minimum wage rate in effect at the time the action was filed.
