Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 20, 2009

Utah attorney Kenneth L. Christensen has authored a new book written to help debunk common myths behind accident cases and provide victims with valuable information concerning their legal rights. The book, Seven Biggest Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Utah Accident Case, addresses many of the key issues involved in Utah accident cases, including an analysis of how insurance companies and adjustors operate and a description of what must be proven to win an accident case. The Utah accident book is written in an easy-to-read format that breaks down complicated insurance and legal jargon to help readers understand the intricacies of accident claims.

“Almost every person I meet for the first time who finds out I am a personal injury lawyer immediately asks a legal question,” says Mr. Christensen. More times than not, they go on to tell me how they were in an accident, and how the insurance company is telling them to do something they aren’t so sure about. I wrote this book to help people faced with this common problem.”

Each year, tens of thousands of Utah residents are involved in car and truck accidents. According to the Utah Department of Public Safety, over 37,000 Utah traffic accidents occurred in 2006 that involved only property damage. In the same year, an additional 18,000 car and truck accidents injured over 27,000 Utahans. Nationwide, roughly 6 million people were injured in traffic accidents last year.

In Seven Biggest Mistakes, Mr. Christensen offers basic facts about Utah accident claims; defines the legal and settlement process; discusses the legal intricacies of medical bills and healthcare plans; and analyzes the seven most common mistakes accident victims make. Mr. Christensen also helps his readers understand the pros and cons of hiring an attorney for legal representation.

“I wrote this book because I do not like to see people accept a bad deal or give up on fighting for their rights simply because they do not know how to proceed,” says Mr. Christensen. “This book outlines what you need to know, and what you must avoid in order to preserve your rights and get what you deserve.”

As a public service to citizens of Utah State, the Utah accident book is free of charge. To request your free copy, please visit http://www.utahaccidentbook.com.

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) February 15, 2012

The Utah Education Network (UEN) working as a key partner of the Utah Data Alliance (UDA) has selected Choice Solutions to deliver a secure data warehouse of de-identified early childhood, K-12, post-secondary, and workforce data provided by multiple state agencies that will use this warehouse for analysis and research in support of data driven decision making.

Statewide longitudinal data systems (SLDSs) are a single solution to manage, disaggregate, analyze, and leverage education information within a state. In recent years, the scope of these systems has broadened from the K-12 spectrum to now encompass pre-kindergarten through higher education and workforce training (P-20W). This project requires information technology and education research expertise from all stakeholders involved to insure its success.

The challenge is in the linking, in determining how best to forge the organizational and technical bonds, and to build the data system needed to make informed decisions. Choice Solutions, the leader in P-20W SLDSs, has worked with 15 states across the nation to customize, integrate, and implement edFusion, their enterprise grade P-20W SLDS. Choices level of P-20W data linking experience, in concert with the edFusion product stack, will serve Utahs system requirements.

The P-20W SLDS project wont be a cold start to the partnership; the Utah State Office of Education and Choice (in partnership with Pearson Data Solutions) have been working together for the past year to implement the Utah e-Transcript and Record Exchange system (UTREx). UTREx is being phased into production with the core (collection, validation, reporting) functions having been implemented statewide in August 2011. In addition, UTREx allows individual, detailed student records to be exchanged electronically between any two Utah local education agencies (LEAs). UTREx is currently piloting submission of official student transcripts to any institution of higher education in the country from any Utah high school.

When complete, the P-20W SLDS project will produce accurate and timely data for education policy and decision makers and will yield improved student outcomes for the State of Utah.
