Personal Injury work has been way more complicated than it needs to be.  In this three-hour course we will break down standardized spinal injury workups for today’s common personal injury market. Once these work ups are understood and standardly applied the documentation is easy to understand and should be standardly applied on every work up.  This is the information that is needed to grow and scale and injury practice in today’s injury market.  It includes historical, clinical and insurance principles.
