21-3A-3. Calculation of damages by trier of fact. If liability is found in a trial under this chapter, the trier of fact, in addition to other appropriate findings, shall make separate findings for each claimant specifying the amount of:
(1) Any past damages; and
(2) Any future damages and the periods over which they will accrue, on an annual basis, for each of the following types:
(a) Medical and other costs of health care;
(b) Other economic loss; and
