Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

“Narratives & What Lawyers Want in 2015”

I told you so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The following is what a lawyer sent to one of our doctors in Georgia today. This is a similar request that I see every day from lawyers nationally because they mostly have similar requests and are to some degree equally ignorant as to what their full needs are. Lawyers still believe they can argue with adjustors… They cannot. The documentation within the carriers are put into an optical character recognition program and valued based upon the “Colossus” type algorithms with 95% of the carriers today. Most lawyers simply do not understand it and once they do, too many simply do not accept that. 

Please refer to the quickie I sent a few days ago showing the Allstate letter certifying they use Colossus as verification of fact and you are not BS’ing them. Without verification, you are simply another doctor peddling themselves to look better, when in fact you are and can prove it. Hernceforth, it is letters like the one I shared with you alnog with a robust CV that will allow them to use you and take you to court if needed (although you will rarely get there). 

The following letter is absolutely nothing new, except for their request for you to keep it short. The long, drawn out explanations are for the Colossus algorithms and the conclusion is designed for the lawyers and courts in a summarized, overly simplistic yet brilliant conclusion. That very simple summary took me 7 years to perfect and will be the arbiter for prevailing or losing in most cases. So get it right or have Dr. Schonfeld (516-695-7732) do it for you because IT MATTERS GREATLY!

There is no margin for error at this level!
