This informative online CLE program addresses the best practices for handling small to mid-size personal injury insurance cases on a budget, from requesting medical and billing records to the use of non-retained experts. This presentation will cover how to help clients without health insurance find a medical provider and will address considerations for issuing a letter of protection. This seminar will also provide information on many aspects of car crash cases, including requesting reductions from medical providers (and getting them), the importance of explaining expenses and strategy to your client, and the practice of disbursing settlement funds in an effective and timely manner. This course features streaming video and downloadable audio presentations from a live CLE seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on June 09, 2017.
