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!
