Hi, I was wondering if anyone has settled after having a spinal fusion of any sort. I have asked my attorney's office to give me rough numbers of what I might expect as far as a settlement goes, but they just tell me every case is different. I have tried to use the LexisNexis website, but I am still not understanding how/where to do any calculations. I have not had my FCE rating from this surgery yet ( I am still in physical therapy), but I have a prior FCE rating of 8% from a microdiscectomy. My post-op MRI shows all the wear-and-tear, arthropathy and other "mild" issues having to do with having an injured spine, but I'm only 27 years old (I have been at this this I was 22). I had the fusion because I was hoping to get a "normal" life back, but with the severe nerve pain I still have, I am not sure if that will be possible. I am going to try to wait it out, but I know as soon as I have my next FCE WC will try to push (yet another) a settlement on me. I was wondering if there is a way to figure out what the lowest amounts I should accept are b/c we all know they will offer below that! Thank you so much for any and all help you can provide!
