Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp

You have an important role

As a Personal Injury Paralegal

As a personal injury paralegal, you have an important role in managing the pre-litigation phase of your personal injury files. The clients and the attorneys need you to move those files forward towards resolution.  You’re the point of contact for all of those clients.  And all of those insurance adjusters.  And all of those service providers.

But where do you start when you’re managing 80+ active files?

Checklists are always the best place to start.  Especially if you want to be able to triage what can’t slip through the cracks today.

Next, you need a written plan and way to track the status of every open file.

Master the pre-litigation phase with

Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp

You learned personal injury law in your torts class in school, but did they show you what exactly you would be doing on a daily basis in your role as a Personal Injury Paralegal?

The Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp gives you all of the tools, templates, and skills to master your paralegal career.

The course starts with the initial client intake (by phone or in-person) and walks you through each step of the pre-litigation phase of a personal injury case.  From the first client intake call through preparing the demand package, we’ll give you everything you need to assist the attorney and have a rewarding career.  When you finish the course, you will be a master at personal injury case management.

“The Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp extremely informative, easy to follow and gives "hands-on" experience before that first internship or legal position. I now have something to guide me, which gives me more confidence in interviewing and starting this new career. I look forward to taking additional classes and highly recommend this program.”
“The Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp was a great course! I learned so much. Thank you!”
"The Paralegal Boot Camp gives practical strategies and tactics that I can immediately apply to my real-word daily tasks."
This course filled in all the gaps of information I needed to be able to do my job after being out of the legal profession for more than 14 years. The law and procedures had changed drastically in that time. I didn't know where to begin. I was surprised that so many Paralegals were doing their jobs based on how they were trained, not even knowing why they were doing it. I wanted to know the whys as well as the hows. This course gave me those answers and so many more.
Thank you for another excellent course!

How is this Personal Injury Course

Different from Other Personal Injury Paralegal Courses?

Most personal injury courses teach you the terminology and tort law. That’s what attorneys need to know when they start their career, and that’s what they taught you your paralegal certificate program.

This is also not a “Personal Injury Paralegal 101” course that just shows you the basics. Instead of just showing you the basics, we take you through each step of a paralegal’s role in a personal injury law firm.  But we don’t just give you tips and tricks. We give you ALL of the forms, templates, and guides that you can download and use right away to help you manage your heavy caseload and look like a rockstar to your attorneys.
