Frequently Asked Questions


WHAT IS A CERTIFIED LEGAL NURSE CONSULTANTCM (CLNC)? 
A CLNC is a registered nurse who has successfully mastered the rigorous CLNC Certification Program developed by the company that pioneered the field of legal nurse consulting. The CLNC has the expertise to quickly pinpoint and interpret medical and nursing issues in any case involving health, illness or injury including: Medical Malpractice,  Personal Injury, Toxic Torts and Environmental, Products Liability, Workers' Compensation and Criminal cases.  The CLNC has the expertise to evaluate the medical record, identify potential defendants and deviations to the standard of care, and assist in identifying whether the damages are related to causation.
 
WHY DO ATTORNEYS NEED A CLNC?
While the attorney is the legal expert, the CLNC has experience with the healthcare system and its inner workings.  Nowhere else will you find this level of expertise for reviewing medical records and understanding the terminology and subtleties of healthcare.  In addition, a CLNC has the expertise to evaluate the findings in the medical records with the necessary legal elements needed for a viable case.  Attorneys who are able to inform potential clients that they contract with a CLNC improve their marketability.
 
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 services relevant to your case including chronologies, narrative summaries, deviations to the standards of care, locating expert witnesses, providing discovery requests and educating the attorney.  
 
WHY SHOULD YOU CONSULT WITH A CLNC IF YOU'RE ALREADY USING AN MD EXPERT?
The services of a CLNC are far more cost-effective than those of a physician.  The CLNC can educate you about a wide range of medical and healthcare issues.  The CLNC can be used as the overall medical manager of the case. This knowledge saves you time and maximizes performance.
