Law firm staff can help with status updates, general questions, and make sure your file is up to date.
Our annual Thanksgiving blog post was devoted to people who help after a workplace accident. Included on the list was our law firm staff who answer general questions and help prepare cases for trial and/or settlement.
We have a wonderful staff that includes paralegals, legal assistants, and receptionists. They care about our clients and will take all the time that is needed. Here is how they can help right now!
Calling for a “status update” can be a frustrating experience. It can take months or even years to resolve a workers’ comp case. Attorneys will always call or send a letter when something important happens. Paralegals are here to provide status updates, answer general questions, and explain what comes next.
It is unnecessary to speak with a lawyer every time something comes up. Do not wait for a call back from the lawyer, just ask to speak to his or her legal assistant right now. Updates about medical treatment and job search efforts can be given. You can also find out the next court date and get help with other questions.
It is important to let the attorney know about changes to address or telephone number. Receptionists take this information and can update your file. Messages can also be passed to the lawyer, paralegal, or legal assistant.
