Case management software is a tool that enables law firms to manage, store, and track legal cases and records like contacts, intakes, documents, events, tasks, and more. It helps you save time and money, and enables you to be a profitable law firm.
There are three types of legal Case Management software
1. On-premise case management software
On-premise solutions are installed and hosted on servers or computers in your office location; this means that every end-user needs a license and that you, as the law firm owner, will be responsible for all aspects of maintenance, data security, and availability of the platform.
2. Generic case management software
The cloud-based aspect of generic case management software addresses some of the server and maintenance issues brought up with on-premise legal software. But not every cloud-based solution is tailored to the unique needs of your personal injury firm.
These legal software solutions might help in some areas of managing your personal injury cases but won’t offer the specific and tailored case management that you need.
3. Practice-focused case management software
These types of systems are both cloud-based and practice-focused, so you get the best of both worlds. Practice areas like personal injury are very specific and a very specialized vertical, with aspects of cases aligned specifically to injury claims, the software solution for such firms should match that. This means taking particular workflows, templates, and contingency fee arrangements into consideration.
