The originating IP was 220.127.116.11 (TATA Indicom, India), so there's the Indian connection again.
Several things don't stand up with this pitch. One of them is the solicitor's name of "Mr. Lamb Brook". That's quite an unusual name, and it probably comes as no surprise to find that there is no such solicitor listed by the Law Society in the UK. Oddly, the telephone number quoted seems potentially valid and is a London number. Update: the name of the law firm is Lamb Brooks and not an individual solicitor, note however that Lamb Brooks are not sending out this unsolicited mail, I suspect that they are not even aware of it.
The email address of "Annie Thomas" firstname.lastname@example.org also gives some clues. rediffmail.com is almost exclusively used in India, thus confirming that this is an Indian-based scam again, Googling this email address shows several clues with a background of buying and selling leads.
This thread ties the email address up with a user called lalchand38 and this is linked to a Twitter account at https://twitter.com/LCS38 (Lalchand / @LCS38) who appears to be Lalchand Sobhani who also uses an email address of email@example.com. You can see his dating profile here and there are several other matches on Google for the same email address which show an interesting variety of enterprises including shipping prescription medications from India to the US.
So Annie Thomas is either Lalchand Sobhani or someone working for him. The solicitor in the UK does not exist. Mr Sobhani has gone to some efforts to hide his involvement here too.
What is probably going on here is lead generation through spam. Lalchand Sobhani is probably trying to generate personal injury leads to resell on to others. In any case, dealing with spammers is unlikely to be beneficial and it could lead to you being seriously out of pocket.
