Police Use of Force Part 1 – Understanding the Use of Force Continuum

TASA ID: 321

We are living in a time when our police force is coming under great scrutiny and criticism for their actions. One question that keeps coming up is “was the use of force utilized by the police justified”? While the public may not understand or even agree, law enforcement agencies do have policies and guidelines that cover their use of force. Officers who find themselves in a situation where they are required to take a criminal into custody or defend themselves must determine how to handle a potentially dangerous rapidly changing split second situation. These policies, known as the Use of Force Continuum, outline the correct actions that should be taken by a law enforcement officer if a situation should arise that requires the use of force.

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?
