The core of a successful paralegal is the ability to review a file and identify what documents or witnesses will strengthen a case with respect to settlement negotiations or trial. In years past, paralegals gathered this information and documentation via written discovery from various medical providers, academic institutions and employers. However, these avenues are no longer the only methods utilized by paralegals.
Instead, the ever-changing world of technology continues to directly impact the legal profession. Paralegals now also turn their attention to the cyberworld, including social and professional networking sites, to investigate personal injury claims. Oftentimes, these sites can provide a deluge of data, including specific communications and entries concerning parties to the action.
