Dwight Steward Ph.D. was retained in this case to provide an independent economic analysis as well as a critique of the opposing economic expert’s analysis of the economic loss of the survivors in the case. Dr. Steward states that the opposing expert report’s estimates of the deceased’s earnings capacity are unsupported and overstated. The opposing expert assumes an hourly wage and 40 hours per week of work for the plaintiff without income tax statements or payroll documents that support those assumptions. Dr. Steward adds that the opposing expert report makes assumptions regarding the deceased’s legal work status life expectancy and work life expectancy that are neither supported by the case documents nor by publicly available data. Dr. Steward also points out that the opposing expert’s calculation of lost household services fails to calculate the value of the household services in terms of wages in Mexico where the deceased’s family lives.
