The SimplyConvert platform just became even smarter: firms can now opt to have the chatbot perform a statute of limitations (SOL) check before sending contracts.
The just-released SOL enhancements allow firms to decide to turn the feature on by practice areas or litigation. For example, a firm may opt to have the SOL check turned on for all motor vehicle accidents, but off for an emerging mass tort where the court has yet to define the SOL. (In selected mass torts where the SOL is known, we have already factored it into the criteria.)
SimplyConvert knows that legal consumers are not always certain about exact dates of injuries when they initially reach out to speak with a lawyer. For this reason, SimplyConvert never sends rejections to potential clients solely because they did not meet a SOL deadline. Instead, when a potential client fails criteria due to a deadline, they are placed in "Pending Review" and told that the legal time will follow up with them to obtain additional details.
