I'm taking this case to mediation next week. Thoughts on case value? I'll send .25 ETH to the person who guesses the closest to what it settles for.

Client was stopped about to make a left turn at a green light when a City of Norwalk van ran the red to his left and t-boned his vehicle. His car was a total loss. Liability is not an issue. Accident happened in early 2017.

Client had a prior lumbar fusion surgery at L5-S1 in 2015 but had a full recovery. He did not see any doctors between 2015 and 2017 when this accident happened. he claims he made a full recovery from that surgery. However, he is still an eggshell because usually having a fusion weakens adjacent levels and increases the likelihood you will need a subsequent fusion later.

Client had significant pain and radiculopathy after this accident. Client attempted chiro, then had MRIs, and then had 3 epidural injections. After zero relief he underwent a discectomy at L4-L5 (adjacent level to his prior fusion). He made a decent recovery. However, several months later his pain returned at is at a 5/10 with severe radiating pain to his butt and legs. He is now a candidate for an L4-L5 lumbar fusion. His current lien meds are about $200,000.

He used to coach peewee football, used to lift weights, and was very physically active. He gained 30lbs since the accident because he is no longer active. He has trouble fucking his wife and his sex frequency has gone way down. He still had pain 4-5/10 and is considering the second surgery.

My initial demand at mediation is $1,500,000. Thoughts on actual value? Happy to answer any questions that help you narrow it down.

Each City is different. They are usually self insurance up to a certain level and then insurance kicks in. Same with most big corporations (Macy's, Walmart, etc).

I once had a client claim she would have sex twice a day until the accident. She said after it was down to 4 days per week.

What makes you think flame? Everything I post has been verified by dozens of people over the years.

You could get close to a million with a good defendant. I'll say $750k but it could be lower, I don't know how hard it is to get a muni to pay up.

$1.5mm as the initial seems a bit low, how do you not have a life care planner with some ridiculous bullshit $3million plan?

Discectomy cases are not worth a million. Even the top trial lawyers aren't getting anywhere near a million on discectomy cases. I've settled a few fusion cases for 1 million and that is a much more serious surgery (and on a couple of those I associated in top trial lawyers).

Also, lifecare planner at this stage is retarded. It's really just bullshit for the jury, it costs a lot (which will lower my client's net), and defense wants to settle the case (so it doesn't really add value). Plus the client was already on disability for the last 15 years, so I can't work up the loss of earnings capacity/lost earnings very much.

My guess for this case is it will settle somewhere between 500k-750k.

Cases settle for more than what they're worth all the time. The entire point of all of this is to show the other side what bullshit you're going to put in front of a jury and convince them that the jury might buy it. I don't know your opposing counsel/defendant but I wouldn't ASSUME they're experts on exactly what this type of case settles for.

At any rate, you came with literally the EXACT same range I put on the case (500 was my lower bound but I put a fixed amount).

Mediation is getting postponed. Client called me earlier today decided to have the fusion surgery now. He said he doesn't want to settle and not get paid when he anticipates getting it in the future anyways. My guess is case value is now 1-2 million. Next demand will probably be 3 million once he gets it.
