How should I prepare for mediation for my Defense Base Act (DBA) or Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) case?

Video Transcription:

Your lawyer will prepare you by explaining the strengths, and the weaknesses of your case, the position taken by the employer carrier, whether an MSA is necessary, what liens have been outstanding, any out-of-pocket expenses, and what your future benefits are. He will then discuss concepts such as present value, and discount rate, and tell you what he thinks the value of your case should be. He will give a range.
