Parallel Search

Search beyond keywords

Write a sentence stating a proposition for which you’d like to find support, and Parallel Search will take it from there. Parallel Search matches concepts so you can find what you meant to find, even if the result has no keywords in common with your query.

Parallel Search
Next-Gen Search

The most cutting-edge NLP, trained on the law

Parallel Search leverages the latest natural language processing methods, including deep neural networks trained on millions of judicial opinions.

Semantic search Deep neural networks Concept matching Trained on the law Parallel Search Keywordless results
Search by Sentence

Better way to search. Better results.

Traditional search technology matches based on words and synonyms. That only gets you so far in the law, where arguments are based on concepts and analogies. Parallel Search uses complete sentences to find you results with matching concepts, even if they have none of the same language.

State v. Recht

221 W. Va. 380 (W. Va. 2007)

…Naum is possible under such conditions and/or whether something else is more likely to have caused the neurological injury claimed. What Dr. Shepek may properly be prohibited from testifying about, however, is the actual “biomechanics” of the accident itself; i.e., whether the mechanics of the accident were sufficient to create some level of force and whether that force would cause an occupant to strike his head on the roof of the car. Dr. Shepek is qualified to render an opinion regarding Dr. Naum’s alleged neurological injury. He has not been qualified to render an opinion on biomechanics.

Any reading of these opinions reveals that it is squarely about the type of bodily injuries that would or would not result from the mechanical forces generated by the accident, which is biomechanical, injury-related testimony. Dr. Stallbaumer is not qualified to give such opinions as he has no training relating to biomechanics or kinematic studies. He is not qualified to testify about the forces involved in this crash. While Dr. Stallbaumer has 15 hours in accident reconstruction training from the Spine Research Institute, various courses in accident reconstruction, and some study…
