Joseph Matthews has been an attorney since 1971, and from 1975 to 1977 he taught at the law school of the University of California, Berkeley. He has for many years been involved in matters relating to seniors, and is the author of Social Security, Medicare & Pensions and Beat the Nursing Home Trap, as well as How to Win Your Personal Injury Claim.From Library Journal:
The industries that are supposed to help people when they are injured actually make receiving compensation more difficult, asserts the author, who is a lawyer. According to Matthews, the health, insurance, and legal communities, more concerned with profit than genuine assistance, make the essentially simple claim process long and confusing. His book sets out to help individuals cut through the red tape when filing and pursuing a personal injury claim. It clearly and thoroughly outlines the basic principles of liability, insurance coverage, the valuation of the claim, negotiating, and finalizing a settlement. The inclusion of tips on state-by-state variations in time limits on filing and monetary thresholds, plus advice on what to do if the accident is caused by a government agency, makes this an essential purchase for public libraries.
