As she was loading up into a company van to leave, another vehicle suddenly backed up at high speed and collided with the van. The impact caused the van to slide, throwing the Plaintiff off balance as she was stepping up into the vehicle. In her own words, "the lady ran into us and I've got listed but they didn't get hurt but they saw it and I say nothing but I did because I was hurting."
  • The other driver, described as a woman dressed in black and red with a black hat, was driving a plain white four-door car, possibly a Ford. Despite the police being called to the scene, the woman refused to provide her insurance information. the Plaintiff recounted, "she wouldn't give us her insurance, her driver's license, and we saw her the following week with a new car."

She described the pain as being so severe that she "lasted three weeks and then this year when the winter came again I heard it so bad." The accident also exacerbated her pre-existing arthritis, causing her left knee to start "popping" when she walked.

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.
