About The Author

Dan Baldyga has a lifetime of experience in the field of motor vehicle  accidents, personal injury and compensation. From 1951 thru 1955 he worked his  way through college employed by the Dolan-Whitney Detective Agency of  Springfield, Massachusetts. His assignments included insurance fraud, missing  persons, financial and background investigations and undercover operations. He  specialized in representing major New England insurance companies, for whom he  collected evidence in the inquiry of motor vehicle accidents.

Upon graduation from American International College in 1955, where he played  1st string varsity quarterback for 3 years, Baldyga was drafted into the United  States Navy where (because of his experience) he was assigned to a “Special  Unit” in Criminal Investigations. His primary duty was to travel throughout the  Midwest, determining negligence and bringing to a conclusion those accident  cases involving government motor vehicles. After a year he was transferred to  the Orient where he worked on serious and highly complicated criminal cases.

After serving in the Navy, he entered the world of insurance claims, where he  began as an Adjuster, was promoted to Supervisor, and then to Claims Manager for  30 years. He then spent another five years of his career assisting company  attorneys at court trials.

In 1968, Baldyga wrote the groundbreaking HOW TO SETTLE YOUR OWN INSURANCE  CLAIM, published by Macmillan. This revolutionary concept (to assist  laymen with their insurance claims) created a heated debate within both the  insurance and legal industries -- because it revealed, the secrets surrounding  the settlement of motor vehicle accident claims. This had never been done  before!

Baldyga appeared on hundred’s of television and radio talk shows throughout  the United States including the Mike Douglas Show where he made the observation,  “Insurance is an ultra-conservative industry that breeds unimaginative, narrow  minded men”. It took a wealth of twisting and turning to dodge the verbal  bullets fired at him from his Home Office. His innovative book sold over 200,000  copies.

His publications also include the 1983 novel A SAILOR REMEMBERS and  his second “How To” insurance claim book, SECRETS NEVER TOLD was released in  1998. His insurance claim articles have been published in dozens of national  magazines, newsletters and e-zines - - reaching millions of readers.

Upon his retirement, Baldyga decided that it was time to publish the definitive self-help guide concerning motor vehicle accident personal  injury claims.

After examining mountains of statistics and confidential reports, he created  BASE (The Baldyga Auto Accident Settlement Evaluation Formula). Experts have  called his personal injury evaluation method “Amazing” and “Revolutionary.” THE  BASE FORMULA is ingenious, yet matter-of-fact, simple, yet accurate, and  eliminates the mystery of how to place a monetary value on “Pain and Suffering” one has endured - - because of their personal injury!

His new book, AUTO ACCIDENT PERSONAL INJURY INSURANCE CLAIM (How To Evaluate  And Settle Your Loss) goes into specific detail regarding THE BASE FORMULA. It  can be found on the internet at either of his 2 his web sites:  http://www.caraccidentclaims.com or http://www.autoaccidentclaims.com

To the gross consternation of both the Insurance Industry and the Legal  Fraternity Dan Baldyga has broken new ground in the normally unchanging  landscape of motor vehicle accident insurance claims and once again tipped the balance to favor the consumer!
