Episode 52: 60 Personal Injury Files Are Dumped On Your Desk, Now What?

In this solo episode, Ann answers a question from a paralegal enrolled in the Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp: What do I do if I’m starting at a new law firm and I’ve just been assigned to 60 active personal injury files? How can I possibly get up to speed on all these new files without something slipping through the cracks?

You’re not alone! It’s typical for personal injury paralegals to manage anywhere from 50 – 90 or more active pre-litigation personal injury files.

In this episode, Ann gives you three steps that will help you get a handle on those personal injury files. She also provides you with three longer-term strategies to use if you’re new to being a personal injury paralegal.
