Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp

Master the pre-litigation phase with

Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp

As a personal injury paralegal, you have an important role in the pre-litigation phase of your cases. The clients and the attorneys need you to move those files forward towards settlement, but where do you start when you’re managing 80+ active files?

The Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp is fast-paced workshop where you will learn the case management techniques vital to a personal injury paralegal’s success in a law firm.

The workshop starts with the initial client intake (by phone or in person) and takes you through each step of the pre-litigation phase of a personal injury case, all the way through the demand package and starting the litigation phase if it doesn’t settle.

Like all Paralegal Boot Camp® courses, you also walk away from the workshop with tools and templates to use right away on your cases. The Personal Injury Paralegal Boot Camp gets you organized and streamlined with a Case Resource Notebook that will allow you to keep up with the high demands and high caseloads that are typical for personal injury paralegals.

“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."
