Episode 317 – Personal Injury Plights and New Insights: The Authoritas Newsletter

Every area of law impacts every other area of law, and that includes the topic of today’s show: personal injury. An auto accident, for instance, can lead to bankruptcy, divorce, or the need to create or revise an estate plan.

Richard Jacobs shares a second batch of insight offered in full as part of the monthly Authoritas newsletter, providing the latest updates in the world of personal injury law. In this field of law, one of the primary impacts of the coronavirus has been on access to medical care. And as any personal injury attorney knows, failing to see a doctor in a timely manner after a personal injury can wreak havoc on a claim.

On top of that, rough economic times have bred more desperate victims of personal injury, making the acceptance of lowball settlement offers much more common. There is no doubt that the insurance companies—which are themselves struggling amid overall economic decline—are well aware that they can use to their advantage the financial struggles of victims of personal injury.

Tune in for the details on all of this and more, including recent changes to the statute of limitations for certain legal actions, and how to mitigate the challenges brought about by the current climate.

About Richard Jacobs

My name is Richard Jacobs, and I've discovered quite a bit about the plight of solo practitioners and small, 2-5 attorney firms like yours these past 12 years.

I've come to understand the unique challenges in marketing ethically and effectively that attorneys face because I have:

  • Helped over 180 attorneys author their own practice area book and become the 'implied expert' in their practice area
  • Helped hundreds of attorneys successfully navigate Google's search algorithm changes, growing their websites from 2 potential clients calling a month to 4+ calls per DAY for some clients.
  • Interviewed and promoted over 507 attorneys nationwide, in practice areas such as:
  • DUI / DWI
  • Family Law
  • Criminal Defense
  • Bankruptcy
  • Auto Accidents
  • Social Security Disability
  • Slip & Falls (Premises Liability)
  • Real Estate
  • Estate Planning / Probate
  • Wage and Hour Claims
  • Expungements / Post Conviction Relief

Before you decide to invest in your marketing, it makes sense to first request your complimentary, custom, no obligation video website review.
