Chiropractic testimony in lawsuits

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.

Should you settle or try your "minor impact" cases?

Should you settle or try your "minor impact" cases?

Minor Impact Soft Tissue (MIST) cases can be some of the most difficult cases to prove and win. We all know what whiplash is, but can you explain it? Can you explain how a crash causes a muscle strain or ligament sprain, and how the direction and force of the impact can impact your client? Do you really know how the body systems function, and why the junk science doesn't add up?

If you are trying "MIST" cases or if you are settling them, you need all the help you can get. Imagine walking into a settlement conference or a courtroom, armed with solid, irrefutable facts about the seriousness of the plaintiff's condition. Imagine cross examining the defense expert and proving the basis of his opinion to be false. Dr. Arthur Croft's new book, Whiplash and Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries can help you do just this.

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?
