Flow Sheet for Handling a Personal Injury Case

This is a flow sheet for plaintiff’s lawyers to use in personal injury cases, starting with the first client interview and moving all the way up to the pre-trial brief. This is mainly a big picture view to keep you from missing the forest for the trees in litigation. It reminds you to check the answer to see if the defendant has pled the comparative fault of anyone else, to ask opposing counsel for a stipulation as to reasonableness and necessity of medical expenses, and the other important steps along the way in a case. While every file has its own nuances, hopefully this will serve as a nice checklist for you on the more common occurrences in a case.
