ARE YOU HIRING A FIRE INVESTIGATOR OR A COMPANY NAME?

TASA ID: 4521

If I were charged with the task of hiring a fire investigator for my company or firm, I would start out looking for individuals that have aspired to better themselves through education and have attained certifications. But there is more to the process than just earning a piece of paper in 40 hours. I would need to evaluate each person’s experience. It seems it would be a better business decision to hire a company or individual with credentials AND experience to handle my potential subrogation case.

Law Ethnography

TASA ID: 921

Preface
As a practicing legal anthropologist for 40 years, I have always been curious about how lawyers think.  Are they really so different from the rest of us?  I enrolled in law school believing that becoming a 1L, a first year law student, would be the best way to learn about law and its practitioners.  I also suspected that it would be really cool to get a law degree.  The following work will disabuse both you and me of that idea.

The Independent Medical Examination: When is Enough, Enough?

TASA ID: 2379

I have been performing Independent Chiropractic Medical Examinations (IMEs) for more than 20 years. One of the most frequent questions I am asked is what criteria I use in determining whether an examinee should have more chiropractic treatment recommended or not, as a result of my examination.

Depositions: How To Handle Yourself & Develop Your Court Face

TASA ID: 2379

Standard legal advice applies here: Sit upright; keep your hands in your lap; always answer questions in short, concise sentences, and never extemporize or add more to your answer than was asked.  This can lead to an opposing attorney taking something you said, and using it against you, or finding an opening to lower your credibility, or have you seem less clear as an expert in the matter being discussed.  If you do not know the answer to a question, or you are not sure, say so, and do not make up an answer in order to seem more expert.

Peer Review: Why You Are Losing Care

TASA ID: 2379

 I have been performing peer and utilization reviews for a multitude of carriers for many years now, and I can tell you that, first off, it is not personal.  It is policy.  Insurance companies need some way to “manage care,” and utilization reviews are a part of that management.  They need to know if a bill is their responsibility or not.  Is the treatment for an acute spell of care?  An exacerbation?  Is it effective, or just going on and on with no end in sight?  Are there other, more effective means of treating the presenting condition?
