Time is money. Of all industries, that phrase is perhaps the most true and applicable to the personal injury law and medical malpractice fields. Working on a contingency fee basis comes with numerous carrying costs (not the least of which are staff and overhead). The shorter your processing times are, and the quicker you get paid, the better off your firm will be. But how do you slash processing times when your staff are already working at maximum (or above maximum) capacity? By utilizing Lexvia’s expert personal injury legal services.
The average civil case in the US takes at least three years to resolve. Some of that is, of course, due to the availability of court dates and clients, as well as how fast defense attorneys and third-parties (medical providers, experts, etc.) respond to your requests. However, a significant cause of the lengthy processing time is the fact that a personal injury legal case has a lot of moving parts. Plus, you’ve got a lot of active files at any one time and there are only so many hours in a day. Savvy firms take advantage of legal services such as Lexvia’s remote paralegals, court calendar monitoring and medical records services to reduce their in-house processing time by up to 50%. Additionally, with the extra resources Lexvia can provide, your firm can stay on top of providers, experts and even the defense, to make sure they are responding in a timely fashion (resulting in decreases to their processing times as well).
Lexvia remote paralegals, for instance, pick up every day where your in-house team leaves off. Before going home, you and your team can assign a wide variety of tasks – from data entry and case creation to drafting complaints, discovery and motions – to Lexvia’s legal services. Whether completing something your in-house team started or starting from scratch, Lexvia’s experienced malpractice and personal injury paralegals will work while your team sleeps (or while your office is closed for holidays, etc.). Backlogs will be reduced overnight and your in-house team can start fresh everyday knowing that things aren’t piling up. Our team is made of up of US-attorney-trained, injury legal services professionals who have years of experience drafting complaints, discovery demands/responses, motions, setting up new clients and more.
There are a range of services we provide beyond remote paralegals, such as daily mail indexing and calendar monitoring. A personal injury firm has masses of paper – both physical and electronic – flowing through the office every day. That paper needs to be sorted, entered into your system, categorized, tied to a client file and labeled for easy access. This delays the distribution of documents to your in-house team. With Lexvia’s legal services, you can take all your incoming mail, batch scan and save it before distribution to your staff. By the next morning, every record will be entered into your system. Furthermore, if you’re utilizing additional services, those same records can trigger additional workflows – all of which happen after hours for you.
On the calendaring side, your virtual team will monitor dockets for developments in your cases and create entries in your calendars. They’ll also monitor internal calendars, creating alerts and reminders for your in-house team. You’ll never inadvertently miss an important date again!
What about those voluminous medical records? Our litigation support services also include a team of medical professionals who have been further trained in the needs of injury law firms. That team will review all your client’s medical records, identifying and sorting out duplicates, while also creating chronologies of all events and treatments and summaries of import records. All of which is cross referenced to each other and to the actual records themselves. Not only does this save time, but potentially thousands of dollars because your team and expert witnesses have a detailed index from which to work.
By utilizing Lexvia’s injury-focused litigation support services, your firm will be free of many of its current restraints. You’ll have access to experienced, on-demand paralegals and legal assistants who will keep your cases moving around the clock. They’ll serve as a second set of eyes for important dates, check in on requests and help your in-house team stay vigilant. Your in-house team will then have more time to handle the most critical of tasks – keeping your clients happy, securing new clients and actually practicing law. Your processing times will decrease, carrying costs will decrease and you’ll become known as the go-to firm for both amazing service and quick results.
