Auto Accident Personal Injury Insurance Claim reveals the inside secrets of claim negotiating and shows you how to settle your case for top dollar. This book will guide you through the insurance claim wilderness and provide you with the answer to that critical question: How much is my "pain and suffering" worth? The mystery of how to place a value on your "pain and suffering" has been solved with the introduction of BASE: The Baldyga Auto Accident Settlement Evaluation Formula. It will help you to prove your losses, and to know how to present them during your negotiations. You’ll learn the all-important 4 "Values" that BASE provides for you: The PREMIUM Value, The MEAN Value, The CORE Value and The LOW Value. The BASE Formula is a simple, yet revolutionary evaluation tool. Knowing how to guide an accident claim to a victorious payoff is not an exclusive ability, possessed by a select few. Don’t be seduced into thinking you can’t do it yourself. That simply isn’t true! This book will show you how. If you’ve been in an accident and you’re uninformed, you have little or no concept of the ultimate value of your possible recovery. Because of this, you’re less able to make appropriate demands. As the claims negotiation process moves towards a close, you’re settlement demands are very often too low or too high. You’re ignorant of the accepted principles, which justify your demands. When you attempt to negotiate a settlement with these handicaps, you run a strong chance of being victimized. The amount of compensation you should be paid isn’t found in a crystal ball. Rather, a number of simple factors such as the type of accident, related injuries, out-of-pocket expenses, medical costs and lost wages all go into determining how much a claim is worth. What amount an insurance company is willing to pay actually falls into a fairly narrow spectrum. To read this book is to become informed on bodily injury claim settlement facts and details. You’ll discover how to implement BASE so you can determine the monetary value of the "pain and suffering" you’ve endured because of your injury. You’ll know what to ask for and how to negotiate it. You’ll learn how to supply the adjuster with all the documentation and proof needed to establish your claim. You’ll gain the knowledge needed to accomplish this when you read Auto Accident Personal Injury Insurance Claim. And you’ll walk away from the negotiation table with a smile on your face.

Insurance companies make billions of dollars by minimizing soft tissue injury claims. They are highly skilled at using strong tactics to accomplish this goal. Many individuals who suffer from injuries related to automobile, semi trucks, or motorcycle accidents often realize this far too late. Now, seasoned personal injury attorney B.J. Kelley draws from decades of experience to provide anyone suffering from an accident with an effective plan of action to manage the claim process. Soft Tissue Injuries and Hard Ball Tactics: Dealing With Soft Tissue Injuries and Insurance Companies is a straightforward, step-by-step “how to” manual to help anyone overcome the daunting hurdles that insurance companies put forth to minimize personal injury claims. The average person is typically not equipped to deal with the carriers on their own. In fact, many of those who incur accident-related injuries simply believe they are just “a little sore” and expect to improve within a few days. However, there is often a delay in the onset of soft tissue pain so that the pain doesn't present until well after a person has foregone an attorney's counsel and made statements that indicated that all was well. Regrettably, this all-too-common course of events may work to your disadvantage when ultimately filing a soft tissue claim. To avoid pitfalls of this nature, Kelley clearly maps out every aspect of this all-important scenario. The book first details the motivations of the insurance companies. It then lays out the carriers' standard procedures and discusses why your own company won't necessarily help you after an accident. The author then itemizes the do's and don'ts you should consider after you've been in a wreck, from calling the police to hiring an attorney. He then defines a soft tissue injury, and the reasons the injury may not be immediately evident after a collision. The book also discusses medical treatment, the challenges of soft tissue injury cases, and what to expect from your attorney during the course of your case. When it comes to soft tissue injuries, information will give you the crucial power you need to handle your claim, and get the treatment to which you are entitled for as long as you may require it. Clear, concise, and indispensable, Soft Tissue Injuries and Hard Ball Tactics: Dealing With Soft Tissue Injuries and Insurance Companies can help ensure that the pain of an accident can be minimized in every way. Read it—and reap the coverage you have coming.

A Cup Of Coffee With 10 Of The Top Personal Injury Attorneys In The United States - This book is for anyone who has been seriously injured in an accident. Ten of the top personal injury attorneys in the United States will provide you with valuable insights, guide you through the hazardous steps of filing a claim, and shepherd you around the landmines when dealing with insurance companies. If you are the victim of an accident that was due to the negligence of another person or company, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Unfortunately, most people don't realize that insurance companies have no incentive to be fair or to fully compensate you for your injuries. Their unstated goal is to find ways to deny your claim or minimize their liability, and pay you as little as possible. We asked 10 of the best personal injury attorneys to share their insights about what you should know before you settle your claim. I personally believe this is the most powerful and enlightening book ever written on the subject.

Danger Above: A Tragic Death, An Epic Courtroom Battle tells the true story of a terrible event that occurred on a sunny June day in 2009. A power line fell on Carrie Goretzka, a young mother, setting her on fire as her young children watched in horror from the front porch of their suburban Pittsburgh home. What followed was an investigation and civil action against the Goretzkas' utility, West Penn Power Company, which the family's lawyer, Shanin Specter, claimed had been not only negligent, but also reckless. The trial was a very difficult challenge for the attorneys representing the family and those defending the utility. In their efforts to reduce the culpability of their clients, the defense at one point tried to claim that the victim was to blame for her own painful death by electrocution. Robert Zausner's chronicle of the case of Goretzka v. West Penn Power Company is an emotional one, begging the question: will justice be served against a dangerous, negligent corporation, or

This shocking, surprisingly entertaining romp into the intellectual nether regions of today's underthirty set reveals the disturbing and, ultimately, incontrovertible truth: cyberculture is turning us into a society of know-nothings. The Dumbest Generation is a dire report on the intellectual life of young adults and a timely warning of its impact on American democracy and culture. For decades, concern has been brewing about the dumbed-down popular culture available to young people and the impact it has on their futures. But at the dawn of the digital age, many thought they saw an answer: the internet, email, blogs, and interactive and hyper-realistic video games promised to yield a generation of sharper, more aware, and intellectually sophisticated children. The terms “information superhighway” and “knowledge economy” entered the lexicon, and we assumed that teens would use their knowledge and understanding of technology to set themselves apart as the vanguards of this new digital era. That was the promise. But the enlightenment didn’t happen. The technology that was supposed to make young adults more aware, diversify their tastes, and improve their verbal skills has had the opposite effect. According to recent reports from the National Endowment for the Arts, most young people in the United States do not read literature, visit museums, or vote. They cannot explain basic scientific methods, recount basic American history, name their local political representatives, or locate Iraq or Israel on a map. The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future is a startling examination of the intellectual life of young adults and a timely warning of its impact on American culture and democracy. Over the last few decades, how we view adolescence itself has changed, growing from a pitstop on the road to adulthood to its own space in society, wholly separate from adult life. This change in adolescent culture has gone hand in hand with an insidious infantilization of our culture at large; as adolescents continue to disengage from the adult world, they have built their own, acquiring more spending money, steering classrooms and culture towards their own needs and interests, and now using the technology once promoted as the greatest hope for their futures to indulge in diversions, from MySpace to multiplayer video games, 24/7. Can a nation continue to enjoy political and economic predominance if its citizens refuse to grow up? Drawing upon exhaustive research, personal anecdotes, and historical and social analysis, The Dumbest Generation presents a portrait of the young American mind at this critical juncture, and lays out a compelling vision of how we might address its deficiencies. The Dumbest Generation pulls no punches as it reveals the true cost of the digital age—and our last chance to fix it.
