The neck bone is connected to the back bone, and the shoulder bone is connected to the arm bone.

You know that much — but to efficiently, elegantly and effectively handle a back or knee injury case (by far the largest category of personal injury, worker’s compensation and disability claims), or a shoulder injury case (accounting for the most time lost from work), you need enhanced knowledge and skills.

Sam Hodge is your most effective guide to achieving them. 

In plain English, and with a sharp focus on the challenges you face in your law practice, Sam covers handling back, shoulder, hand and knee injury cases.

He makes practical, case-clarifying sense of complicated medical injuries, terms and conditions.

He provides the essential tools that you need to properly evaluate and articulate your case to make it persuasive to

  1. Your client,
  2. Opposing counsel
  3. The judge and, if need be,
  4. The jury.

Illustrated with vivid photos and detailed video, this program carefully and thoughtfully covers all of the details you need to know — including the parts of the body most susceptible to injury, and how those injuries most often occur.

Included in the presentation are explanations of how diagnoses are made and the practical details of medical tests and surgical procedures from the unique perspective of a very successful lawyer.

Your ability to evaluate cases and to prosecute or defend them is immeasurably enhanced in one dynamic, entertaining and information-packed day.

About the Speaker:
