Why Understanding TBI is Critical for Personal Injury Attorneys

Why Understanding TBI is Critical for Personal Injury Attorneys

I thought I would provide some insights into why the upcoming Trial Guides Brain Injury CLE is directly applicable to plaintiffs' lawyers. By way of background, I am a retired doctor who now practices personal injury law in addition to running Trial Guides. At any given time, approximately 90–95 percent of my clients have traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injury legal cases involve a number of issues that must be established during a case-in-chief. They also involve some unique defenses that are not normally encountered in personal injury cases. In addition to dealing with these issues in a trial, the...

Increasing Claim Value on Neck Injury Cases video

Increasing Claim Value on Neck Injury Cases video
Many personal injury practices center on spinal soft-tissue injuries. Most lawyers do not view these as valuable cases, but other lawyers obtain six-figure settlements and verdicts on the same type of soft-tissue injury cases. What would happen to your practice if you could spot more serious injuries, and then obtain objective evidence proving that these cases are worth much more than a few thousand dollars?

Working with Chiropractors on Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE

Working with Chiropractors on Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE

According to the Insurance Research Council, 32% of all people injured in a motor vehicle crash seek chiropractic care. Despite the Doctors of Chiropractic program being over 4000 hours (similar to that of a Medical Doctorate), lawyers, judges and in some cases jurors demonstrate a clear bias against chiropractic testimony.

In this webinar, lawyer Aaron DeShaw, a former Doctor of Chiropractic, shows you how to work more effectively with chiropractors.

Overcoming "Minor Impact" Defenses in Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE

Overcoming "Minor Impact" Defenses in Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE
Many motor vehicle cases involve cases with "minimal" vehicle damage. In the early 1990s State Farm, Allstate and others started handling these claims differently as "minor impact" or "Minor Impact Soft Tissue" (MIST) cases.  Insurers started making little or no offers on these cases, despite US government data showing people are being injured in these crashes.  As Allstate's profits soared the rest of the auto insurers followed.  Lawyers started rejecting these cases, despite a huge number of people being injured every year in these crashes.

Increasing Claim Value on Neck Injury Cases Live Webinar CLE

Many personal injury practices center on soft tissue injuries from car accidents. For many lawyers, these are not particularly valuable cases. But what if you could find objective evidence that some of these cases are worth much more?

In this webinar, Aaron DeShaw discusses new medical imaging that can help you objectively prove serious ligament injuries in the neck that will cause permanent injuries and can only be resolved with costly fixation surgery.

Trial Guides Intensive Motor Vehicle Case CLE

Trial Guides Intensive Motor Vehicle Case CLE
Recent statistics from the insurance industry show that 80% of all motor vehicle claims settle at $5,000 or less, 90% settle for $15,000 or less, and that less than 1% settle for $100,000 or more.(1)

Trial Guides believes these case values do not reflect a true state of the severity of crash injuries, but instead a failure by attorneys to fully understand the claim process and the injuries involved in these collisions. We believe it's time to face claim underpayments head on. So, as the nation's leading publishing company for plaintiff's lawyers, we asked ourselves this question. How can we radically change the way personal injury lawyers handle motor vehicle cases with one CLE?
