  • I am proud to have studied to acquire a very high level of skill and confidence in the auditing of accident-related cases.
  • My staff and I are very Knowledgeable, friendly, dedicated and eager to help with our audit services to reverse undervaluation’s of injury claims.
  • Plaintiff’s attorneys know that when they engage our audit services, they can feel good that they have made the right decision.
  • Our satisfaction rating has been consistently high, and attorneys soon realize that we care about their clients and that we are thoroughly knowledgeable in auto accident-related audits to reverse undervaluation’s. This is based not only on our successful actions but also because attorneys want to know that their auditor cares about getting a reversal of low settlement valuations especially when there is no legal and factual basis and when Unfair Claim Settlement Practice Acts have been engaged and the adjuster violates his own Ethics Codes of the Adjuster. The audit is the solution to unfair, undervaluation of injury claims.
  • I am proud to have studied diligently to acquire a very high level of skill and confidence to become an auditor of accident-related injury claims and subscribe to the “Observer Rule of law and Empowerment.”
  • We are eager to assist when injury claims have been undervalued and there is no legal or factual basis for so low a determination.
  • We want our plaintiff’s representatives to feel that when they choose our audit services, you have made the right decision.
  • We understand how frustrating it is for all plaintiff’s parties to be on the low end of a settlement valuation. No one should have to go through that — and we are truly grateful that you are allowing us the opportunity to bring a more favorable resolve to this issue of unfair, injury claim undervaluation. That is our sole purpose.
  • The human mind is no match against the insurers software’s, therefore we have acquired the CASE Audit Settlement Evaluation software that makes up to 600 decisions and determinations to match the insurers software’s and exchange decision points, interface and input added valuation into an injury claim. The CASE software we use has “Computer Aided Decision Making’ functionality and is in a rare class of semantically interoperable software’s. It also is a “Decision Support System” and will include “Statements of Undisputed Facts’, “Memorandum of Points’ research and references to show its side has greater believability than the defense.
  • We strive to keep our satisfaction rating high and show that we care. Thank you for being our valued customer. We are grateful for the pleasure of serving you and meeting your injury claim audit and enhancement needs.
  • Fair and equitable settlement valuation is the injured’s rights, and we provide our audit services to reverse undervaluation when it occurs in injury claims. You trust our audit services and we take that seriously. When unfair, unreasonable undervaluation occurs, there is accompanying stress and anxiety over injuries, future prognosis, total costs, wage loss, property damage and the implications that arise from insurance issues. In fact, there are 26 sections comprised of medical, legal, economic and administrative factors of an injury claim. The audit is like a search engine to assemble all the factors of the claim in the correct language, format and sequence to interface with the insurers software’s, exchange data among the insurers 67,880 decision points of an injury claim to reverse undervaluation and add to the worth of the claim.
  • I have trained to become an auditor and ‘knowledgeable observer’ of facts, including missing value drivers especially when there is no legal or factual basis for low valuations. We will audit each case using MECE Standards; Mutually Exclusive and Collectively Exhaustive, to apply the highest standards to establish the preponderance, win the greater weight of the evidence challenges and reverse undervaluation’s of injury claims. You can be confident that you are in caring hands and thank you for trusting us with your client’s audit.



I am a trained auditor and ‘Knowledgeable Observer’ of medical and economist considerations. I utilize proprietary AI software to formulate demands to enhance valuation across 26 monetary markers that are often missing, and I conduct independent audits to reverse the unfair undervaluation of an injury claim.

Demands formulated contain ‘decision points,’ ‘case maximizers,’ and ‘value drivers’ in 26 separate sections.

The audit will refute the engagement of any “Unfair Claim Settlement Practice Acts.” An audit will correct misstatements of the defense or when insurers present an inadequate explanation of the legal and factual basis for unfair undervaluation of an injury claim.

I invite you to call to discuss case specifics. I will conduct a free analysis to determine if any claim is a candidate for audit to reverse an unfair undervaluation.
