Providing Expert Digital Forensics & eDiscovery Solutions in Personal Injury Litigation Matters for Over 18 Years

Personal injury cases can range in scale from enormous national mass torts class actions, to medical malpractice involving a single doctor and patient. Small matters are no less important to the litigants, and devising appropriate digital forensics and electronic discovery solutions can be critical regardless of the size of a lawsuit.

ELIJAH has over 18 years of experience assisting lawyers in a variety of personal injury matters, working with steering committees, law firms, solo practitioners, and in house counsel to find the evidence needed to determine true fault and scope of damages.

The types of digital evidence that can be of potential relevance in personal injury disputes is near limitless. Even in a seemingly straightforward car accident case, each driver might have a smart phone that needs to be examined for distracted driving and/or geo-positioning. Surveillance footage and dash cam data might require collection and analysis. Social media posts could evidence the impact and duration of injuries. All manner of devices and accounts could contain relevant communications. When these sources are potentially relevant in a car accident, imagine the need for expertise relating to electronically stored information (ESI) in mass tort cases affecting hundreds of thousands of class members. Counsel an count on ELIJAH to ensure that evidence is properly collected, searched, and produced so that justice can be obtained.
