Oregon Personal Injury Lawyer, Aaron DeShaw, has been honored by being invited to contribute to the American Association for Justice’s legal textbook Anatomy of a Personal Injury Lawsuit, with some of the greatest trial lawyers in American history. The culmination of over three years of work with over 50 of America’s leading trial lawyers and litigation experts, this two-volume book set contains a wealth of information for practicing trial lawyers. The books provide practical advice on issues ranging from client intake, case investigation, insurance claims issues, medical causation, trial methods, and much more. Edited by John Romano of Florida, the book features nearly 1000 pages of practical advice by lawyers who have a career of achieving significant outcomes for their clients, including Gerry Spence, Mark Lanier, Randi McGinn, Peter Perlman, Patrick Malone, Michael Burg, Judith Livingston, Robert Habush, David Wenner, Bill Barton and many more.
Attorney Aaron DeShaw was invited by the American Association for Justice to write a chapter of the book on insurance claim practices. DeShaw’s chapter includes how auto claims are divided and analyzed at auto insurance companies, including the designation of claims into categories such as Policy Limits Cases, First Call Settlements, Special Investigations Unit (fraud investigations), minor impact or “MIST” cases, and other cases that are evaluated either traditionally by adjustors or through bodily injury insurance claims software such as Colossus. DeShaw is the best-known author in the country on the topic of Colossus, having written two 400+ page books on the topic for doctors and lawyers.
DeShaw and the other authors contributed to the book so that lawyers could do a better job helping injured people.
