Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?
A CLNC is a registered nurse who has completed a specialized certification to consult on medical related legal cases, and uses her expertise to quickly pinpoint and interpret medical and nursing issues in any case involving health, illness or injury
Why do Attorneys need a CLNC?
The CLNC bridges the gap providing the Attorney specialized medical knowledge. While the attorney is the expert on legal issues, the CLNC is the expert on all nursing, medical, and healthcare system issues. The Legal Nurse Consultant acts as a specialized member of the litigation team whose professional contributions are critical to achieving winning results.
When should you call a CLNC?
From the moment a potential case comes in, the CLNC becomes an invaluable asset by identifying the medical issues, screening the case for merit and providing an array of CLNC services relevant to your case.
Why should you consult with a CLNC if you're already using an MD?
The services of a CLNC are far more cost-effective than those of a physician. A nurse interfaces with all disciplines (MD's, Nurse Practitioner's, Nurses, Therapists, Pharmacists, Hospital Administrators, etc.) and therefore has an exclusive perspective on the inner workings of the entire healthcare system.
