In this case, Dr. Steward was retained to provide a critique of the analysis by the opposing party’s economist. The plaintiff was a Mexican national working in the U.S. at the time of his injury. In reviewing the opposing experts report, Dr. Steward determined that if economic damages were relevant in this case, the opposing expert’s analysis significantly overstated the earnings. His earnings capacity estimate, which was not based on plaintiff’s actual earnings history or record evidence, exceeds the amount that the plaintiff had earned prior to his injury. The opposing expert’s analysis, which assumed that the plaintiff would have had the work life expectancy of a U.S. citizen, did not account for plaintiff’s immigration status at the time of his injury. If the plaintiff were to return to Mexico, the opposing experts present day valuation of the life care plan would need to be adjusted to account for any updated costs information.
