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.

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.

The 18th-century French philosopher Denis Diderot - the principal intelligence behind the Encyclopedie and the author of idiosyncratic fictional works such as Jacques the Fatalist and Rameau's Nephew - is also considered by many to have been the first great art critic. Until now, however, Diderot's treatises on the visual arts have been available only in French. This two-volume edition makes his art-critical texts available in English. Diderot's works are among the most provocative and engaging products of the French Enlightenment. Moreover, their ruminations on many issues of perennial interest (invention versus convention, nature versus culture, and technique versus imagination; the complex relations) between economic reality and artistic achievement give them a rare pertinence to current debates on the nature and function of representation.
