As we celebrate our nation's independence on this glorious 4th of July, a thought comes to mind: the fascinating combination of fairy tales and insurance knowledge found in Once Upon A Claim: Fairy Tales to Protect Your Ass(ets), which was released on May 11, 2024.

True to its name, the book intertwines enchanting fairy tales with lessons about insurance and claims, aiming to make the topics both engaging and enlightening. One such story that resonates particularly well in light of our national holiday is “Hansel and Gretel.”

In my interpretation, I use the tale to shed light on how bodily injury claims are valued. In the retelling of the story, I have various villains come together in a self-help group to see the errors of their ways. In the Moral of the Story, I draw parallels with the often complex and tempting nature of insurance claims. By diving deep into the narrative, I aim to illustrate the intricacies of value determination of bodily injury claims.

The Fourth of July is not just about fireworks and barbecues. It’s about freedom. Freedom from oppression, freedom to express, and freedom to protect what we hold dear. Similarly, Once Upon A Claim encourages readers to educate themselves, ensuring that they remain free from the unexpected ‘witches’ or hardships that life might present.

As you celebrate this Fourth of July, reflect on your personal freedoms, especially the freedom of education. Take a moment to delve into the enchanting yet instructive world of Once Upon A Claim and uncover the fairy tale wisdom that can guide you to safeguarding your treasures. Finally, take a moment to thank those who have protected our freedom of education, speech, thought, and all the other privileges we enjoy. Have a safe and happy Fourth!
