 “Personal Injury Web Site”

 

Over the last few years, CMCS Management, Inc. has provided you a common Web site for lawyers to go to and it has been very successful, as reported by the lawyers. Over the last few weeks, we have been tinkering with the success formula based on feedback from the successes and frustrations from both you, the Lawyers PI Program members, and the lawyers I lecture to around the nation. We are going to have many changes and one VERY important step is to create the opportunity for you to have a Web site dedicated to personal injury for both PI lawyers and patients.

 

The feedback that I have been getting from lawyers nationally is that they continually use the generic site I have created, but it would be more impactful if it was specifically for your practice. The following are the responses you gave me in the last 24 hours with the survey I sent and an explanation for each question.

 

Are you aware that many doctors now get many of their new PI patients through the Internet?

I have been getting e-mails and calls from doctors around the country who have demonstrated that the Internet is their #1 avenue for new patients.

 

Do you think that lawyers use the Internet to determine if doctors are qualified as experts?

The 29 that said, "No," you are all clueless bastards!!! 100% of lawyers I have lectured to and worked with over the last few years have stated that is the first place they look to learn about a doctor.

 

Will lawyers get a benefit from a separate Web site specific to personal injury and your office?

Although my first goal is to make this specific for lawyers, as we develop it, I will try to incorporate MD’s as well.
