This is a compact survey of traumatic cases showing Physician's fees, loss of time and percentage of disability.

The author has compiled charts and schedules in an effort to give physicians in general practice a reference that will help them in these situations. The schedules and percentages were compiled from reports of insurance companies, railroads, state insurance funds, United States Department of Labor and the experiences of specialists.

The first half of the book is purely anatomic. There is a glossary, definitions of terms used in the booklet and a report of workman's compensation, loss and extent of disability and by states.

The guide should be of value to surgeons doing casualty and compensation work and for claim superintendents, adjustments and legal and claim departments of insurance companies for setting up reserves and adjusting cases.
