Attorneys and Insurers seeking on-line user accounts can do so by accessing the request form.
On-line user accounts are required in order to generate the necessary bar-code coversheets for DMS compliant document submissions to the DIA. The accounts also have many benefits for both attorneys and insurers. Attorneys can review the chronology of all their cases (where they are the attorney-of-record), view a event calendar showing all upcoming events (conciliations, conferences and hearings) for their cases and, of course, view all case documents on file once the DMS has been implemented.
Insurers can equally see the case history for all matters to which they are a party. Insurers will also be allowed to see all documents filed with DIA upon the launch of the DMS.
The on-line account system has robust security that allows only authorized parties to see case information and documents. Again, only those entities that are a party to a case will gain access to the case documents and information.
There are no user fees or start-up fees for the on-line accounts. The only requirements are that you have Internet access and a valid e-mail account.
Sign-up early and begin using your on-line account as a useful case management tool, and be prepared for DMS implementation well in advance.
