We use our arms, shoulders and hands for most of the regular tasks and jobs. Quite obviously, any injury to the arms can put us off work and activities of daily life.

This is exactly where an arm injury attorney can come in handy. In this post, we will talk about the things that need your attention.Knowing Your CaseIf you have injured your arm at work, workers' compensation laws are applicable.

How to Overcome: “Another Attorney Dropped His Fee to Just 25%”

One thing intake specialists have a hard time dealing with are objections and stalls from potential new clients. As I've written about earlier, most intake specialists come from a call center or customer service background-they don't have a strong sales background-so when they get stalls or objections, they usually fold on the call and let the prospect get away.In fact, just this week I was monitoring calls for a client firm I work with, and when a caller called in to cancel the day after signing the contract, the IS (intake specialist) literally said:"That's perfectly okay to take your time. Our agreement gives you three days to cancel and if you're not comfortable with our firm, then you can definitely walk away... "Seriously, she said, "You can walk away"! In fact, she went on for over

Why Customer Service Reps Don’t Make Good Intake Specialists

Most of the attorneys I work with run ads for intake specialists who have a background in either call centers or in a customer service environment. They think that someone who knows how to help people-or deal with problems-would be the perfect candidate for handling their intake calls. They're wrong. Think about it: What happens when you call customer service for your Internet, cable TV, or cell phone? My experience is that when someone finally answers, they typically sound bored, aren't very engaging, certainly aren't smiling, and they don't mind putting me on hold for long periods of time. When they finally get back on the phone, they are still bored, are quick to pass me off to another department, and I often end the call feeling they don't really care if I get the help I need or

Are You Unhappy With the Insurance Carrier’s Settlement Offer?

When you are injured in an accident or collision, there are many losses you can incur as a result. Past and future medical expenses, hospital bills, and lost wages are just a handful to name. Because of these economic deficiencies, you hope that the liable party's insurance carrier will offer a sufficient settlement that will cover your damages and losses, and return you to the quality of life you had before the accident.Unfortunately, insurance companies are in the business of making money for their shareholders (or policy holders), rather than spending it. They make their profits from insurance premiums and return on investments. In addition to this strategy, insurance companies will drag on negotiations because the longer they have the money, the more interest and returns they make from
