Last week, I spoke and moderated at the Michigan Association for Justice seminar on teaching auto accident lawyers “How to Settle Accident Cases for More Money.”
I stressed that lawyers must understand how computer claims software programs like Colossus, which are being used by the insurance industry today, are changing everything, and how they’re causing a very real decrease in the value of many personal injury cases.
The seminar was a great success. I will be posting videos soon sharing some of my most important tips for Michigan personal injury lawyers. My own topic was “Five Tips to Maximizing Personal Injury Settlements.”
The other speakers were fantastic, and I just want to say thank you once again to everyone who volunteered to help share some very wise insights on how attorneys can better serve their injured clients.
Here’s what they discussed:
* Secrets to Settling Tough Personal Injury Cases: Norman Tucker, Sommers Schwartz, PC, Southfield.
By the way, this forum was on Norman Tucker’s birthday. Norm is past-president of Michigan Association for Justice, and a real credit to our profession. He is a successful and respected trial lawyer who never backs down in fighting for the rights of victims of medical malpractice. Happy Birthday, Norm.
