Mom Killed in Ohio Car Accident; Daughter in a coma. Grandmother calls.

Ohio car crash attorney Jack Carney-DeBord got a call from a grandma who needed help. He had previously helped her on a small case and now something horrible had happened. She said “Jack, I need your help.”

During the course of investigating this case, it became clear that Jack would need many different experts in different specialties to support their claim, should the case proceed to trial. It was necessary to hire many different experts including an economist, a life-care planner and pediatric medical experts.

An economist is an expert who studies the value of money. A life-care planner is an expert who determines what type of life and what type of work this person might be suitable for based upon the injuries and disabilities they suffered as a result of the accident. Pediatric experts were needed to show what medical care she had received, what medical care she would need in the future and how these injuries would affect her for the remainder of her life. This young girl remained in a coma for many months. The most remarkable part of this tragic story was that six months after the horrific accident, she was able to return to school.

The highlight of Jack’s involvement came when he walked this little girl into school.

As the case was approaching trial the parties decided to mediate and try to settle the case prior to trial. The insurance company fought tooth and nail but by the end of the day, Jack and grandma were satisfied with having obtained a $5.5 million settlement to compensate this young girl and her family for the devastating loss they suffered.

Gerry, I've read your book and watched at least 100 of your videos, and follow your blog, so "I feel like I know you already!".

I wanted to introduce myself, I work for an attorney, David Aylor, in the Charleston, SC area. I do all his in house marketing, and most recently have focused on video marketing, using your approach.

We started exploring the strategy last July, started filming by September, and published the first video to YouTube Nov. 1. I am now publishing 2 videos per week and the response had been great.

I want to share with you how we have be utilizing the material on Facebook, to build a community of "friends" of the law firm. These are previous clients, referral sources, friends of the staff, other attorneys, new media (radio, TV, and print) as well as other prominent folks in the community.

I really was against the idea of Facebook marketing at first (because I think there's alot of hacks and snake oil salesmen in the "social media/SEO marketing" world). But I was very wrong, the content we are creating is being liked, shared, and commented on, and Facebook's strong community platform (and it's EdgeRank algorithm) is giving us a great way to keep our "inner circle" close to the office, and relevant in the minds of them and their friends.

This was the first video we posted to Facebook-
"Can My Facebook Profile Be Used As Evidence In Court?"
95 likes, 25 comments, 27 shares

The local NBC anchor actually saw it in his Facebook feed from a friend sharing it, and interviewed David Aylor for a 6 o'clock news story on Social Media and Privacy in the legal system. (you can see here if you'd like

I would love to show you more about how I'm strategizing these videos for YouTube use as well as Facebook now. I think there are definitely some areas of practice and law firms that it wouldn't work for, but I'm sure there are a bunch that would benefit from it.

Thanks for all you do, and I hope I get the pleasure of meeting you soon!
