In medical litigation, the hours can quickly pile up, particularly in complex cases.
Sometimes, those hours need to be performed by law firm associates or partners, who generally command a high hourly rate. Oftentimes, however, they can be performed efficiently and effectively – and at a much lower hourly rate – by experienced legal nurse consultants. It just makes sense to have medical records reviewed by medical professionals.
At Medical Resource Network (MRN), our legal nurse consultants have the healthcare education, training, and experience to assist in all types of medical litigation, from single claimant cases to class-action, multi-district litigation.
Legal Nurse Consulting Services For Individual Medical Cases
Even when medical litigation involves a single claimant and seems fairly straightforward, the process of gathering, reading, analyzing, and summarizing stacks of medical records and documents can be daunting and time-consuming. If you manage a small, or even mid-sized law firm, you might not have the personnel to competently perform the tasks, or your client might not be willing to pay associate- or partner-level fees for the work. One option would be to hire a paralegal with an extensive medical background, or even an in-house nurse. But the commitment of bringing on another part-time or full-time staff member could be more than you’re willing to undertake. A better answer might be to work with an MRN legal nurse consultant. This solution could save you time and money with discovery and other litigation activities.
Legal Nurse Consulting Services For Multiple Defendants Or Claimants
