Summary Of Case Details

Accident Summary

  • On June 12th, 2023, the Plaintiff was riding her electric bike home from work in Lake Worth, Florida. As she approached her apartment complex, she began to make a turn into the entrance. Suddenly, without warning, a large vehicle came up behind her and struck her electric bike from the rear. The driver of the vehicle had apparently failed to see the plaintiff as she was making her turn.
  • The impact of the collision sent the plaintiff flying off her electric bike. As she stated in her own words, "the guy behind me didn't see me and hit me from behind." The force was significant enough to cause serious injury to the plaintiff's body.
  • Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene of the accident. The police determined that the other driver was at fault for the collision. The plaintiff was then transported by ambulance to JFK Hospital, where she was admitted for treatment of her injuries approximately two hours after the accident occurred.


Injuries Summary:

  • As a result of the accident, the plaintiff suffered injuries to her left shoulder and the lower part of her back. In her own words, she described the pain, stating, "I can't move my shoulder and my back hurts all the time." The pain is not constant but rather comes and goes, particularly when she moves. As the plaintiff put it, "it comes and goes when I move" and "it's hard to move."
  • The extent of the injuries to her left shoulder and lower back have significantly impacted the plaintiff's mobility and quality of life. The pain she experiences when attempting to move these parts of her body has made it challenging for her to carry out her daily activities and responsibilities.


Further Damages Caused To Plaintiff By Accident:

  • Unable to work: Due to the injuries sustained in the accident, particularly to her left shoulder and lower back, the plaintiff was unable to work for a period of time. This loss of income has likely caused financial strain and added stress to an already difficult situation.
  • Ongoing pain and mobility issues: The injuries to her left shoulder and lower back continue to cause the plaintiff significant pain and difficulty moving. This ongoing physical discomfort and limitation in mobility have undoubtedly impacted her quality of life and ability to engage in activities she once enjoyed.


Insurance Details

  • Plaintiff's Insurance: the plaintiff did not have personal auto insurance at the time of the accident, as she was riding an electric bike. She stated, "I wasn't, I didn't have insurance, I was on a bicycle, electric bike, didn't have insurance for myself."
  • At-Fault Person's Insurance: The driver who hit the plaintiff had auto insurance through a provider believed to be called "Global Insurance" based in Fort Lauderdale. The driver had basic PIP (Personal Injury Protection) coverage. It is unknown if they had bodily injury liability coverage.


Other Relevant Details

  • There were witnesses to the accident.
  • A police report was filed, and the police determined that the other driver was at fault for the collision.
  • The plaintiff's electric bike was not totaled in the accident.
  • A claim was filed with the other driver's insurance company.

Frequently Asked Question

At a high level, the plaintiff signs a non-binding LOI with us showing their intent to be connected with an attorney for their case, then after you buy the case, we call them back and have them sign your specific retainer agreement.

Here's how the process in a bit more detail:

First, the plaintiff signs a Letter of Intent (LOI) with us, expressing their interest in being connected with an attorney for their case.

We clearly state in the LOI that it's not a binding agreement and that we are not a law firm or providing legal advice. The LOI simply serves as a way for the plaintiff to indicate their desire to be matched with a lawyer.

Once the LOI is signed, we put together a comprehensive package containing all the relevant details of the case, including the transcript, accident information, injuries sustained, insurance details, and more. This package is then made available to attorneys like yourself.

If you find a case that interests you and decide to buy it, we'll have the plaintiff sign your specific retainer agreement. After that, we'll introduce you to the plaintiff, and you can begin working on their case.

In the unlikely event that the plaintiff decides not to move forward with your firm or becomes unresponsive and we're unable to reach them to sign, we'll either provide you with a full refund or find a suitable replacement case (however this is extremely rare).
After you win a case we’ll introduce the plaintiff to you over email and text. We tell all our plaintiffs that their attorney will be reaching out to them within 24-48 business hours

Once we introduce you to the plaintiff, you can follow your normal onboarding process for onboarding a new client for a personal injury case.

After you’ve been introduced, we’ll confirm with the plaintiff that they are happy with you being the attorney to represent them in this case, then you’ll sign the addendum that clarifies you are the firm that will be representing the plaintiff. At that point, the client is fully yours and the handoff is complete.
If in the rare case a plaintiff we introduce to you rejects your firm and does not want you to be their counsel, then we will refund you the full amount and introduce the plaintiff to the 2nd highest bidder.

Otherwise, since you get access to the full case details, call transcript, and signed agreements before bidding, all transactions are final.
We generate some of these cases from strategic partnerships in the industry and some are generated via SEO, ads, etc. by our team of world class advertisers, marketers, and intake agents.

But regardless of where this case comes from, we make sure to be in control and aware of the entire process from optin to signed retainer. This allows us to ensure that this retainer was generated in a fully compliant manner and has the correct expectations set.
