According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, lawyers are increasingly using various forms of technology to perform more efficiently. Although lawyers continue to use law libraries to prepare cases, most supplement conventional printed sources with computer sources, such as the Internet and legal databases. A critical key to the ultimate success of a personal injury firm is its ability to improve efficiency in such a way that additional caseloads can be sustained and case matter is better managed. Electronic Document Management (EDM) is the weapon of choice when it comes to efficiently managing and automating the flow of information across the firm. Personal injury law firms face a document management problem unlike other types of law firms. The requirement to be very efficient is paramount as the more cases taken to closure directly affect the bottom line. To be efficient at closing the cases requires a strict and repeatable document management process. From initial intake of the client forms and documentation to processing all requested medical and accident records requires an efficiency not found in other types of law firms. A good document management system is a necessity in today’s firms as the amount of paperwork per case is only growing and there is not an end in sight to the volume of paperwork processed for a single case. A good document management system will allow the firm to intake initial documents, workflow them electronically and get updates on the status of needed documents at the touch of a button from any workstation in the firm.
