Giants fan's life expectancy issue at civil trial
JUN 24, 2014 2:39p ET
Doctors retained by Bryan Stow's attorneys have previously asserted during court proceedings that Stow's life expectancy has dropped two to five years.
The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1l7pdzI ) that estimate was challenged Monday by Robert Shavelle, technical director of the Life Expectancy Project. He said Stow, now 45, would probably live about 23 more years - 10 years less than average.
An attorney for Stow and his family cast doubt on Shavelle's methodology, saying it did not account for how active a lifestyle he lived.
Life expectancy is an issue if the jury decides to award monetary damages for Stow's lifetime care.
