In this wrongful death case Dr. Dwight Steward assessed damages that were suffered by the estate of Ms. Rodriguez and projected the cost of raising her children. At the time of her death Ms. Rodrigue was in the early portion of her worklife. Dr. Steward calculated lost salary fringe benefits and household services the decedent would have contributed to her estate. In the second portion of his analysis Dr. Steward projected the cost of raising Ms. Rodriguez’s two children until the age of 18 by using projected costs from the current USDA’s Expenditures on Children by Families annual report.
