The primary role of the legal nurse consultant is to evaluate, analyze, and render informed opinions on the delivery of health care and the resulting outcomes. For over 20 years, legal nurse consultants have acted as collaborators and strategists, offering support in medically-related litigation and other medical-legal matters.
According to the Houston Chronicle, 25% of attorneys deal with medical-related cases. They rely on specially trained CLNC® consultants to help them win cases for their plaintiff or defense clients. Few attorneys know how to read medical records or understand the terminology and subtleties of healthcare issues. While the attorney is the expert on legal issues, the legal nurse consultant is the expert on nursing and the inner workings of the healthcare system. We apply our knowledge of medical, nursing and health-related issues to make the attorney’s job easier, more efficient and more effective. Our professional expertise as an RN and a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant qualifies us to review and interpret relevant medical records, screen medical-related cases, prepare chronologies, assist with discovery and provide dozens of other CLNC® services.
