In August of 2010, the Michigan Supreme Court issued its decision and struck down the standard set by Kreiner. Rodney McCormick suffered a serious fracture resulting in two surgeries and a year away from work. Following the law as interpreted in Kreiner would have left Mr. McCormick without any compensation, while creating an almost insurmountable barrier for other car accident victims seeking damages in auto accident cases.

GetLegal is pleased to announce the launch of its full redesign of TexasInjuryAttorney.com, the flagship website for The Rasansky Law Firm. Rasansky is a Texas-based plaintiffs’ law firm founded by Jeff Rasansky, a 20-year veteran in the personal injury field. The site is a comprehensive online resource for information relating to personal injury law. GetLegal provided not only an entirely new design and navigation for the site but also organized its hundreds of pages in a way to make them easily accessible for users. In addition, GetLegal is implementing premium search engine optimization (SEO) services to maximize the visibility of the site on the internet.
TexasInjuryAttorney.com provides legal information on a wide variety of personal injury topics, highlighting the areas of vehicle accidents, cerebral palsy and other birth injuries, medical malpractice, nursing home and daycare abuse, premises liability and defective products. The site also offers videos and a blog that provide extensive information on personal injury law matters throughout Texas and the rest of the United States.
Rasansky states that he built TexasInjuryAttorney.com as a resource for people all over Texas, whether in small towns or large metropolitan areas such as Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin. He believes that negligence, neglect and injuries impact people from all walks of life and everyone deserves the leverage a lawyer brings to the table. “That’s why our site helps guide visitors through what can be a delicate process and details when it’s appropriate to contact a lawyer in a personal injury case,” he states.
GetLegal also developed a multi-website marketing strategy for The Rasansky Law Firm, featuring “landing page” sites for five targeted practice areas: nursing home abuse, Texas truck accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and cerebral palsy.

Euless, Texas (August 27, 2009) — GetLegal today announced the launch of its new web-based Client Intake System (CIS).
New clients are the lifeblood of any law firm, but the process of tracking and qualifying leads can be cumbersome and time-consuming. If a firm doesn’t move quickly, other firms will scoop up the best cases. And how can a firm monetize the second-tier cases that it doesn’t want to handle itself? GetLegal’s Client Intake System, powered by bxLegal, offers solutions to these problems.
CIS is a secure web-based system that allows a firm to take control of the client intake process by automating management of all leads the firm receives by phone, e-mail or website. CIS centralizes all the information a firm uses to determine whether to sign a potential client and streamlines the referral process for those potential clients who aren’t the right fit for the firm.
CIS provides all the tools required to manage the intake process, offering the following key advantages:
- Increases Profits – Faster response means more signed clients. Powerful referral tracker increases referral revenue.
- Improves Responsiveness – CIS gives instant alerts of new client inquiries, questions from staff and other key events.
- Frees Staff Time – As a secure web-based system, CIS can be accessed from any computer at the office, at home, or in the field. A firm can deploy staff where they’re needed, and they can still access all necessary client intake data.
- Reduce Support Staff – CIS facilitates the entire client intake process and automates repetitive tasks.
- Accountability – CIS lets a firm see the party responsible for each potential client and the status of each intake.
- Risk Management – CIS facilitates better and easier communication with potential clients and documents each interaction.
- Marketing Tool – Firms can use CIS to measure and analyze the effectiveness of marketing campaigns and also to generate mass e-mails, newsletters and mailing lists to communicate with all or some of the parties in the CIS database.
After the initial setup, there are minimal requirements.
- No Hardware or Software to Install – CIS is hosted at an offsite data center. There is no hardware or software investment. All a user needs is a modern web browser.
- Affordable – CIS is an affordable solution priced to provide excellent value. Firms pay a monthly fee for each user. CIS will pay for itself with one good case or one unmissed referral fee, as well as by increasing efficiency and lowering staffing costs.
- Minimal Training – CIS is easy to learn and easy to use.
- Instantly Expandable – CIS grows with the firm. Attorneys and staff can be added at any time.
