Proof: Evidence: Vocational

Callaway v. Valor Ins. Co. [6/2/04] 2004 MTWC 46 Where the claimant's loss of wages is based on what he is capable of earning rather than actual post-injury earnings, and neither party presents vocational evidence concerning the number of hours of work available with respect to post-injury jobs, in which the claimant had also worked for a time preinjury, the hours actually worked in the position preinjury is the best evidence of the hours available at lest where the only other evidence is anecdotal, undocumented, and unpersuasive.
