When working with a Medical and Life Care Consulting Legal Nurse Consultant, your nursing professional becomes an integral part of your legal team. Our nurses serve as the medical expert in your legal case by assisting attorneys and other legal professionals in interpreting records and charts, understanding medical terminology and providing ongoing consultation on healthcare-related topics.
This is, through the application of knowledge acquired during the course of professional nursing education, training, and clinical experience to the evaluation of standard of care, causation, damages and other medically related issues in medical-legal cases or claims.
