  • Details

Approximately 70 percent of all auto insurers in the U.S. use bodily injury assessment software to evaluate claim value in third-party cases. Most of them conceal its use or allege they no longer use the software. The most widely used bodily injury claim software is called Colossus. Colossus and other similar programs require specific information to generate maximum claim value. To obtain maximum value on the cases you settle, you must provide adjustors with the specific information that Colossus requires. Even if a case is filed for litigation, some insurers still restrict all defense counsel offers to the Colossus claim values.

This one-of-a-kind CD/DVD provides lawyers with the information necessary to obtain higher offers in cases evaluated by Colossus. DeShaw discusses the impact of the top 5 value drivers in the system. He discusses how AMA Permanent Impairment ratings increase the value of the case. He teaches how special "Duties Under Duress" and "Loss of Enjoyment of Life" forms will provide the best opportunity for your clients to get the maximum offer from Colossus software based on their injuries. He concludes with tips on how to write Colossus style demand letters to trigger higher offers in an ethical and honest way.

This CD/DVD is a must if you handle auto accident cases. The Colossus system does not provide a full and fair value to cases, but if you don’t go to trial on every case, you owe it to your clients to get the best settlement possible. This CD/DVD gives you the tools to accomplish that.
