Do you use old technology in your personal life? For example, is your cell phone or computer more than five years old or even more than 3 years old? The answer is almost certainly “no. Why? Because the technology that old is obsolete. Unfortunately, despite keeping up with technology on the personal side, many personal injury law practices are still using outdated systems.
Your personal injury practice needs modernizing if you can answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following:
- Do you find yourself tripping over bankers boxes every time you move around your office?
- Can you only work from your office?
- Does “remote work” involve using third-party software to create a connection between your computer at home and your physical desktop at the office?
- Do you struggle with keeping your entire team up-to-date on the current status of all cases?
- Does your staff waste countless hours going back and forth to verify who’s done what and when?
- Do you spend time searching through physical boxes for a crucial document?
- Is your IT structure and systems a major expense? Do you pay a local IT company to handle security, monitoring, etc.?
How to modernize your personal injury law practice?
Many personal injury law firms use outdated systems because they don’t have the time to research new options. Lawyers and staff are also afraid that implementing new systems will cause major disruptions – with teams coming in to check servers and computers for compatibility, upgrade hardware, install software and conduct endless training on complicated systems. Then there’s the fear of incomplete data migrations. That’s what used to happen and still happens with legacy systems. Fortunately, there’s a better way.
Modern personal injury law practices, whether established firms or startups building a personal injury law practice are taking advantage of advances in technology to get secure, state-of-the-art systems tailored to the personal injury realm. Highly savvy firms are going online with CloudLex®️, the next-gen LegalCloud®️, and forerunner in cloud-based legal practice management software.

But wait, there’s even more to building a personal injury practice
Security is always a concern for law firms, especially given hackers’ increased targeting of law firms. Your personal injury law practice stores a wealth of information that hackers would love to get. Many firms, even the largest among them, think that the solution is doing everything in-house. Those are the firms with a higher probability of getting hacked.
With CloudLex, your firm gets secure legal software with state-of-the-art security, around-the-clock monitoring, and proactive security testing, all with no additional costs. Why?
