The Virginia Workers Compensation Commission uses the Life Expectancy Table for the estimation of future medical benefits. If you are familiar with my blog, you know that settlement values are based, in part, on the value of future medical needs.
Virginia Code Section 8.01-419 is where you will find the tables for life expectancy. Right now, men are estimated to live an average of 74.7 years and women an average of 80 years. Yes fellas, the ladies are estimated to live longer! This table does offer exceptions for those of us who are lucky to live past the average years.
