How Can a Medical Malpractice Nurse Consultant Benefit a Case?
In a case where a claimant has alleged that a healthcare provider was negligent in their duties or breached standard of care, thorough research and review by a medically trained expert is crucial to establish whether the claim can be supported. A medical malpractice nurse consultant possesses the required skills and training to evaluate medical malpractice and negligence claims, along with assessing impacts on the claimant.
Our firm’s nurse consulting services for medical malpractice/negligence cases include:
- Identifying any breaches of duty;
- Interpreting relevant medical standards of care and determining whether they were met by the patient’s medical provider(s);
- Locating missing medical records and/or identifying signs of tampering;
- Performing a multidisciplinary liability assessment;
- Screening and finding relevantly qualified, credentialed expert witnesses;
- Assisting with interrogatory questioning;
- And more.
If a patient requires ongoing care for an injury or condition stemming from harm connected to medical malpractice, our experts can also provide life care planning services. A life care plan outlines an individual’s care needs over time in addition to the costs of providing this care. Thus, it can be a highly valuable resource to help substantiate a demand amount.
