E-Discovery Software Helps Woman Plead Slip and Fall Case to Local Law Firms
Over time Campbell sought the advice of numerous attorneys but was turned away each time.
"I don't have the money to cover the medical bills", explained Campbell. "I called all those attorneys that you see on the TV that promises they will fight for you and was told that my case didn't 'interest' them. Not that I didn't have a case that it didn't interest them."
Linda Campbell had slipped in a public area of the store where an employee had just finished mopping. There were no warning signs, the water blended in with the floor, and the store was aware of the wet area. Under most circumstances this would have been enough for any attorney to take on the case, but due to the extreme popularity of the store in question the attorneys shied away from it.
"I knew I had a case", explained Campbell. "I just needed help in getting the information I needed to present it to anyone who would listen. That was when a friend recommended I try an e-discovery software program."
E-discovery software programs are often used by attorneys and law firms to search for previous cases and documentation that can be used in court. The programs are available for purchase and it doesn't take an attorney to understand what information is presented.
"I downloaded the program immediately and started searching for information that could help my case", said Campbell. "I found over 10,000 previous cases that were just like mine and I just started taking notes."
After three days of intense research Campbell had enough information to present it to a local law firm. The law firm agreed to give her a free consultation, but told her that they didn't think there was much they could do for her.
"I really thought there wasn't much I could do for her in terms of legalities", explained Terri Huff. "Then she walked in with a presentation and all this documentation that cited her case and I knew I wanted to work with this person. She had such passion that I couldn't pass it up."
Campbell and her attorney have filed the motion in the local courts to seek compensation for medical bills. The hearing is set for some time in August.
