"boosting profits for lawyers...restoring quality of life to victims"
Michael E. Shery, Ph.D, Clinical Psychology, President
WARNING: DON'T settle another injury case
without first reading this letter!
Otherwise, you are likely to be shortchanged again! YES...again!
To help you prevent this, I need a little information about your practice...
just the number of new injury and/or workers comp cases you get
I will then be able to help you dramatically balloon the profitability
of your practice- without having to add new clients.
You see, millions of dollars are lost each year to attorneys because of
psychological disorders that are undetected in their injury clients.
For Example...What do You Do in these Situations...?
If you notice your client starting to limp after an accident, do you ignore it as
"just part of life," or do you bring it to his attention, suggest an exam and consider it for
What if he appears to be having more headaches? Do you ignore it or bring them to
his attention as worthy of an exam and possible compensation? Of course, you suggest the exam and consider the
symptoms for compensation.
But what do you do about the resulting anxiety. family problems and
You see, each year millions of dollars are lost to victims...and their attorneys
because even though these injuries cause various forms of anxiety...
and were induced by the injury, they are unrecognized, specifically as
psychological symptoms, but viewed only as "everyday attempts to cope."
Are You Part of the Solution... or... the Problem?
What if YOU notice that since the accident your client seems unusually edgy, angry, irritable or
What if you discover, in passing, that he has been arguing excessively with his
What if he mentions that he's been unmotivated or in a "funk...?"
I bet you utter a few kind words then quickly move to "more important"
In the frenzy to deal with physical symptoms, lawyers, clients and doctors are
oblivious to these behavioral signs... and their longer term consequences:
They include poor work performance, a deteriorating marriage, chronic depression,
lack of motivation and crippling anxiety...
consequences down the road that you may never get a chance to see?
Who Am I?
I'm Dr Mike Shery, a clinical psychologist, member of The American Counseling
Association, diplomate in behavioral medicine and have been in
practice for over 25 years.
I've treated hundreds of patients for injury-induced anxiety, depression and family problems. Many were referred by
physicians because of treatment-resistant headaches, backaches and pain.. .and only diagnosed AFTER their claims
were settled... with no opportunity for further compensation.
When asked why they didn't seek treatment sooner, the answer was always some form
of. .. "I thought I just had to get through it" and "my lawyer
and none of my doctors said I needed it."
Now, I was treating a patient who had little money, was now suffering from unrelenting stress and was ALSO feeling
betrayed by the system.
Depression- The "Unmentionable Injury"
Injury victims, particularly men, are reluctant to reveal depression or anxiety
directly "as a psychological symptom." Massive diagnosis error occurs because
the signs of the client's emotional symptoms are mainly revealed indirectly and only "in passing" during
conversation, not in a specifically structured interview. This contributes to
the misperception that these symptoms are "just part of life," not possible signs of real psychological injury
lurking beneath the surface.
In their offices, doctors, themselves, fail to recognize up to
50%of their own patients' psychological disorders!
So how could you.. .or your clients, be expected to recognize them?
The Big Problem is that...each year this lack of awareness costs you and your clients THOUSANDS of dollars in
deserved compensation and contingency fees. This crisis of massive failure to
recognize psychological symptoms needed an urgent solution.
So...The American Academy of Family Physicians... American College
of Obstetrics and Gynecology... The American Medical Association... The American College of Physicians and The U.S.
Preventative Services Task Force thoroughly studied the issue.
They concluded that doctors, to be diligent, must routinely screen their
patients with a specifically designed instrument. It should be able to detect the apparent OR hidden psychological
disorders that patients are reluctant to disclose and that doctors don't recognize in everyday
"Routine Screening for Depression Advised"
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from depression--and, because as many as half of all
cases of this very common mental disorder are missed and still others are mistreated, a federal
task force has recommended that all adults be screened for depression during their regular
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force--an independent medical panel asked by the federal
government to evaluate the latest research in deciding what routine medical screening Americans
need--said the nation's primary care doctors could begin to identify as much as 90% of cases by
asking basic questions about depression.
It’s being recommended that doctors should ask patients two questions:
1. "Over the past two weeks, have you felt down, depressed or hopeless?" and
2. "Over the past two weeks, have you felt little interest or pleasure in doing things?"
A yes answer to either question should be followed with in-depth questionnaires to determine
whether the patient is depressed, the panel said.
The task force said it recommends screening adults for depression in clinical settings that
allow for effective treatment and follow-up. Citing insufficient evidence about the reliability
and accuracy of such tests in young people, they declined to make a recommendation for or
against routine screening of children or adolescents for depression.
The Important Message is Due Diligence. These disorders
should be treated but doctors chronically overlook them. Therefore, the recommendation for specifically designed
screening is the only way to reliably identify reluctantly revealed psychological symptoms before they cause
more trouble down the line, like ...work problems...family discord...chronic pain...etc. ..
After All, Too Many People Fall through the Cracks in Hospitals and Doctors'
You know what that means... Since it happens to doctors, it's virtually
guaranteed to be happening to YOU! You can be SURE that hoards of these
disorders have been overlooked by you-and thousands of dollars in compensation- have

And if you don't act now...it will just keep happening!
You owe it to yourself, your family and your clients to do better than
Remember: It's all about due diligence... and being
