a Legal Nurse Consultant?
A Legal Nurse Consultant is a Registered Nurse
possessing the specialized knowledge and experience
of nursing applied to the comprehensive review of
medical-legal issues. Nurses receive advanced
education to provide a greater service to attorneys,
insurance companies, government agencies, healthcare
organizations, and other organizations. Nurses
complement the direction of a case by providing
knowledge from experience, education and research.
Legal Nurse Consultants review and analyze medical
records, detect tampering in medical records, offer
assistance with demonstrative evidence, evaluate
medical information, and provide professional
nursing opinions regarding the causation of injuries
and the assessment of damages to individuals. We
interview witnesses under the direction of our
attorney clients to help elicit the truth in cases.
Legal Nurse Consultants also conduct medical
research and educate our attorney clients about the
results and other findings. We provide reports and
other presentations to the attorney to help in
determining how to further find the truth in the
case at hand. Nurses are more familiar with patient
charting than physicians and can recognize errors or
omissions in these charts. We can also recognize
signs of tampering within the patients charts and
records to cover up mistakes.
What is a Certified Legal Nurse Investigator?
A Certified Legal Nurse Investigator is a Registered
Nurse or Legal Nurse Consultant possessing extensive experience in medical record
review and analysis and the advanced training
necessary to recognize what may be missing in the
chart, replaced in the chart, or when a chart has
been altered significantly. The LNC Firm
employs several Legal Nurse Investigators.
