Colossus: Understanding Auto Insurance Claims from Trial Guides on Vimeo.


Approximately 70 percent of all auto insurers in the U.S. use bodily injury assessment software to evaluate claim value in auto injury 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. Physician records are the most important determinant to claim value if those records address the information of importance to the computer system. To take chart notes correctly in personal injury cases, you need to know what this system is looking for. This CD/DVD set will teach you how to keep records in personal injury cases.

This one-of-a-kind CD/DVD provides doctors with the information necessary to help their patients obtain larger settlement offers so that they can receive the future care they need. The nation's leading Colossus expert, Aaron 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 patients to get the maximum offer from Colossus software based on their injuries. He concludes with tips on how to write Colossus style narrative reports to trigger higher offers in an ethical and honest way.

This CD/DVD set is a must if you handle auto accident cases. The Colossus system does not provide a full and fair value to cases, but if your patient's lawyers don't go to trial on every case, you owe it to your patients to take notes in the best way to allow for maximum settlement offers. This CD/DVD set teaches you how to accomplish that.
