Case Management for PI Firms

Document creation and management in LAWFUSION is slick and easy as relevant information stored in the system about cases is pulled into documents, forms and emails automatically wherever necessary.

The system populates in the region of 50 PI forms including N1, N244, N254 and N215 and over three hundred template letters and documents( e.g. instruct doctor, request police report, instruct medical expert etc.) auto-produced by the system at the click of a button. Every letter, document and form generated can also be dispatched automatically or manually by print, fax or email and /or converted to PDF if required.

The LAWFUSION task planner is linked directly with your workload and important dates and actions flagged.  E.g. limitation dates are automatically scheduled with a date countdown making sure fee earners are always aware of the timescales.

SMS Text Messaging

For a law firm that is seriously interested in becoming more client oriented, there is little question that text messaging should be part of your tool-kit. With LAWFUSION you can send messages to individuals or groups on an ad hoc basis or automatically as part of a workflow procedure i.e. when a key step has taken place.  Users can set up templates for regular messages from the LAWFUSION desktop and record all text sent messages in the case history for future reference. Text messaging is particularly relevant for PI lawyers to keep in touch with their clients to remind them of important appointments, update them on progress, request information.

Online Case Tracking For Clients

LAWFUSION Case Tracker automatically publishes selected case information and correspondence to a secure website. This allows the fee earner to keep the client and third parties up-to-date re case progress around the clock. The look and style of the online site can be configured to reflect that of your own Practice, so users visiting from a link on your site need never know that they had left your website.

Document Management

As well as storing outgoing documents, attendance notes and emails, all incoming correspondence can be scanned and viewed in the case history.

This provides a complete history of each PI case file including photographs i.e. accident site and physical injury, scanned forms/documents and other graphics related to the claim, making them all instantly available to all relevant members of staff at the click of a mouse.

Document version management is also available allowing full and sub-revisions to be produced. A version tree clearly shows a documents history.

Billing

The LAWFUSION Billing Wizard takes users through the billing process to create a draft bill for approval and the final bill.  The user will have the opportunity to include disbursements associated with the case. The approval process can be set to include an approval step by a supervisor or the accounts department.

Fully Integrated Time Recording

All LAWFUSION modules are fully integrated with each other.  As a PI letter or form is created within case management a set amount of time can be apportioned to the case.  Alternatively the user can be prompted with a suggested time booking ensuring no time is missed and accurate time records are maintained whilst giving the user full control over the actual time recorded and billed. The system also provides a start/stop clock which remains on screen for the user whenever they need it and for those fee earners with time targets to meet.  The LAWFUSION target button graphically presents KPIs such as today’s recorded time, billing and cash received on a monthly and year-to-date basis.

Fully Integrated Accounting

With PI Claims the need to record disbursements for hospital record fees, court fees, GP note fees, source agents fees etc. can all be recorded and managed in LAWFUSION, which provides an accurate  breakdown of all transactions. Alternatively fee earners can produce an accounting chitty to simply record costs against the relevant case. Full posting requests and direct posting options are available allowing users to manage ledgers directly or to simply notify accounts of a posting request.

Management Reporting & Litigation Manager

In addition to all the standard reports a PI department needs, LAWFUSION also includes a flexible report writer and a unique Litigation Manager feature which gives an interactive, onscreen view of cases and next actions,.  The Ligitgation manager screen allows the user to choose columns for key data (e.g. Limitation date, WIP, Office/Client balance, Introducer).  You can drill down to reveal the full case details and even progress actions from within this easy-to-use facility.

The report generator enables you to define your own reports, for example:

  • All files where limitation dates fall in next year/month/week etc.
  • All files where a reply to a letter of claim is due/has expired this week
  • All employee liability files opened this year/month/ week etc.
