A plaintiff may recover damages for the lost of earning capacity of the career choices that plaintiff had a realistic probability of achieving. Where a young plaintiff’s injury prevents pursuit of a specific career, courts have generally required some proof that plaintiff was far along in his or her training or experience. A plaintiff who is not already “fitted and qualified” for a claimed career must demonstrate a reasonable probability that he or she would have become fit and qualified for that career. Licudine v. Cedars-Sinai Med. Ctr. (2016) 3 CA5th 881, 894-897, 208 CR3d 170, 178-180.
