** available any time of day and in time increments convenient to you through end date above **, together with the Houston Bar Association, are pleased to present a special online CLE program that 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 audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on June 09, 2017. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

    • Optimizing Damages

    • Medical Treatment and Letter of Protection
