Wouldn’t it be nice if the minute you were hungry, the food you wanted to appear? Take-out from your favorite Italian spot? On the table. Your grandmother’s deviled eggs? In the fridge. A snack for the gym? Here’s a to-go bag. A reservation at that trendy new Mexican place? Right, this way.
Unfortunately, that’s not how it works: the Mexican place is booked through 2020; your pasta spot takes over an hour to deliver; you forgot to grab snacks at the store; your grandmother lives in Cleveland, and you’re stuck in a deposition all day—so you’ll have to figure out some makeshift plans to satiate your hunger.
What does this have to do with law?
Great question. There’s also a lot that goes into filling your personal injury appetite: case management, document management, intake, marketing, drafting, and editing, collaborating with colleagues, calendaring, updating clients, delegating tasks, protecting and storing your data…the list goes on and on. In the past, you’d have to fill these Personal Injury hunger pangs using piecemeal “solutions” that required a bunch of work to discover and even more to use—lots of passwords, subscriptions, training, toggling, and failed attempts at synergy among them; basically, it was like eating a bunch of small snacks, instead of a hearty and nutritious meal—you weren’t left with a ton of energy to focus on what really matters…advocating for your clients.
That is until now. CloudLex’s state-of-the-art cloud-based case management software solution has revolutionized personal injury software by offering everything a PI law firm needs in one place—like the Cheesecake Factory…but better.
What is CloudLex?
CloudLex is more than just a legal case management system—it’s a next-gen LegalCloud® to solve all your problems. It allows you to build, manage, and grow your PI practice seamlessly from intake to closure and beyond—from within one single platform.
Our comprehensive personal injury platform includes the following apps:
The hub of the CloudLex platform, it provides a bevy of case management software for better collaboration and organization—and macro-level analytics to help make your PI law firm more efficient.
Gives you an effective process to attain and manage leads. Our intelligent forms guide you through client intake so you don’t miss anything—and our marketing reports help you operate informed and boost your profits.
Lets you send out and take on referrals from a growing community of plaintiff attorneys. Partner firms can execute fee agreements, share case info, and track changes to referred matters seamlessly in the app.
Frees up the space and resources you need to grow your PI law practice. All data from your closed cases (even digital correspondence) can be archived for a period of 7 years on a secure and HIPAA compliant server.
Allows you to text clients from within our secure platform—so you no longer have to worry about sending confidential info to an unsecured or outdated email address.
…and that’s just the tip of the efficiency iceberg. CloudLex delivers you an infinite-course menu of apps, features, integrations, and tools that go way beyond case management software and satisfies all your personal injury needs. And while there are infinite reasons our clients choose to use CloudLex —here are the most oft-cited ones.
1. Designed for you
The personal injury practice area has its own set of rules, challenges, and idiosyncrasies—you need a case management software that can match those distinct needs. Unlike generic legal software that can only provide piecemeal help, CloudLex is specifically tailored to guide personal injury law firms from intake to closure.
CloudLex provides more than just the normal case summary and medical injuries list; we help you track data unique to your matters, with specific info for automobile accidents, slip and fall cases, medical malpractice, and more. And our referral apps allow you to market yourself to a growing network of prominent PI attorneys and take on new cases from the comfort of your couch.
Running a law firm is expensive—so why spend more? A traditional case management software or typical “on-premises” case management system requires a significant investment of time and money annually on stuff like servers, office space, training, software licensing, upgrades, around-the-clock IT support, and more—just reading that long list of expenses is a huge waste of time and money.
Legal cloud computing or CloudLex, on the other hand, is cash-flow friendly with low monthly subscriptions, zero long-term maintenance fees, and no specialized IT staff—all you need is a laptop and internet. Plus, it’s growth-friendly…so you can add 5000 users as painlessly as 5 with the click of a button.
A day in the life of a modern personal injury attorney is non-stop—from administrative tasks to collaborating with colleagues (…the list never ends)—it’s a wonder you have time to read a case…let alone win one. You don’t have the luxury to spend months training staff on how to use a new legal technology.
With CloudLex, there is no learning curve—it was designed with PI law firms in mind so it’s intuitive for everyone (from partners to interns) from day one. And our integrations with your favorite legal tools (e.g. Word, Outlook, Office Online, iCal, Dropbox, Google apps) give your employees a sense of familiarity so they can be productive from the get-go.
Unlike most practice areas in the legal industry, the majority of personal injury attorneys get paid on a contingency fee basis—i.e. if your case isn’t moving forward, you aren’t getting paid. Lucky for you, CloudLex is inefficiency’s worst nightmare.
With CloudLex, you can quickly and successfully manage all your firm’s macro-level and case-specific tasks—e.g. intake, document management, calendaring, administrative tasks, case updates, client communication, referrals, digital archival—in one comprehensive platform…allowing you to take on more work without taking on more staff.
5. Always accessible
The life of a personal injury attorney is increasingly mobile—you never stop and neither do your legal cases. Whether you’re stuck in traffic or a courthouse lobby, you’re not at your desk… with your trusted computer, colleagues, and assistant nearby. You need case management software that will be there for you…so you can be there for your clients.
Enter CloudLex…it can be accessed anywhere, at any time, on any internet-enabled device—allowing your firm to stay agile and ready to meet the collaborative needs of your clients and staff alike.
Client data security is the biggest issue that PI firms face today. A single data breach has the potential to be very costly—e.g. business interruption, expensive litigation, regulatory scrutiny, and a loss of goodwill with your clients. With CloudLex, your data (and your reputation) is in good hands.
CloudLex is hosted on top-tier Microsoft Azure servers so your data is subject to continuous monitoring—and our web-based legal communication management software allows you to share updates with your clients securely. Plus, documents in cloud technology aren’t affected by the elements, so your firm won’t skip a beat should a natural disaster strike.
Don’t you skip a beat…head on over to our website now so you can schedule a free demo and discover your own reasons why CloudLex’s legal cloud is the only choice for your personal injury practice.
