Legal Nurse Consultant

What is a Legal Nurse Consultant?

The legal nurse consultant is a registered nurse who uses the expertise as a health care provider and specialized training to consult on medical-related legal cases. LNCs bridge the gap in the attorney's knowledge by utilizing experience and knowledge of medical terminology and healthcare issues to achieve the best results for the client. While the attorney is the expert on legal issues, the LNC is the expert on nursing and the health care system. The legal nurse consultant acts as a specialized member of the litigation team whose professional contributions are often critical to achieving a fair and just outcome for all parties.

What Makes a Legal Nurse Consultant Distinct?

A Legal Nurse Consultant is a registered nurse who uses existing expertise as a healthcare professional to consult on medical-related cases. Unlike a paralegal or legal assistant, the Legal Nurse Consultant utilizes the foundation of education and clinical experience of nursing, to bridge the gap in the attorney's knowledge with the ability to recognize, interpret and analyze all relevant medical-related information in a claim or case. The LNC provides attorneys with a cost- effective review of medical records and an expert understanding of nursing, the healthcare system and its inner workings.
