In this case Dr. Dwight Steward was retained to provide a critique of the opposing economic expert and economic damage analysis. In his analysis of the opposing expert report Dr. Steward identified a number of critical flaws including an inappropriate fringe benefits multiplier worklife expectancy and life expectancy as well as unsupported future real compensation growth and inflation predictions. In the second part of his report Dr. Steward replicated the opposing expert’s report using the correct real compensation growth percentage benefits multiplier and worklife expectancy to examine a more realistic estimate of lost financial support.
