PSP Program Scrapped;
Five Alternatives Suggested

SettlementCentral.Com will not continue to develop the Professional Service Provider (PSP) program. We were unable to assure our members of uniform high quality assistance.

In lieu of hiring a PSP, we are suggesting using other means to answer your needs for information or assistance.

1. First, and foremost, try us: we believe that our members’ side personal injury settlement help includes all of the information and forms, examples, insurance demand letters, and templates that will be needed for a self help insurance claim, be it an auto accident, dog bite, or slip and fall accident. See more detail in Personal Injury Insurance Claim Help From www.SettlementCentral.Com, below.

2. Other Online Legal Forums or Question and Answer Sites May Be of Some Limited Help.
There are various so-called “expert" forums that one can locate online. Some sites have a question format and many people can provide answers. One of the better sites with a forum on injury claims is www.nolo.com.

www.googleanswers.com is also a good forum, although you have to pay for an expert to answer your questions. www.allexperts.com is an excellent forum where you get to read the background of the volunteers to see if the helper has qualifications you can trust.

3. Hire an Attorney: Three Choices—CONSULTATION, WORK, or REPRESENTATION.

Hiring a personal injury attorney to do anything is not like going through a drive-in fast food window. Attorneys aren’t just hanging out waiting to give you advice about personal injury claims since THAT is their livelihood and they want to REPRESENT you, not give away their secrets.

If you think that you do need an attorney, then study up first and learn HOW to hire an attorney. If you are going to hire an attorney for REPRESENTATION, then by all means become a member at www.SettlementCentral.Com and save thousands of dollars in attorney fees by using our information, forms, and negotiation strategies to get the BEST POSSIBLE arrangement on your professional services agreement.

CONSULTATION or WORK means that YOU remain in charge of your claim in all respects, but you get to have a qualified personal injury attorney advise you and maybe do some work for you in your file. Fees are paid in cash (well, that means check, credit card, but rarely in cash), as opposed to the contingency fees attorneys charge when they REPRESENT a client. Contingency fee payments are taken out of your settlement.

4. Legal Nurse Practitioner

These are registered nurses who also know about the personal injury insurance claims practices. They might be useful in deciphering your medical records, or in making up the part of your demand letter that discusses your medical diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.

5. Paralegal Practitioner

This might be perceived as a “natural" second choice if no attorney is available. But in truth, paralegals do not have all that much to offer in the way of advice on personal injury insurance claim settlement techniques. Usually their practices focus on some other area of the law, such as domestic relations.
