Medical Malpractice LNC Case Screening – Is This For You?
As a legal nurse consultant, you play a crucial role in helping attorneys identify medical malpractice cases that are meritorious. There is a lot at stake in a medical malpractice case – the costs, the potential recovery for the plaintiff and the reputations of the defendants.
Using your medical knowledge and analytical skills, you are in a prime position to help attorneys understand the merits of a medical malpractice claim. You can be the light that guides the attorney to the meritorious claims.
This program is ideal for legal nurse consultants.
In this 90 minute webinar, you will discover:
- How to establish the standard of care
- How to identify theories of liability
- How to use key elements of effective case screening
- How to spot case winners and losers
- How to avoid pitfalls of medical record analysis
Join us for 90 minutes as two experienced legal nurse consultants and expert witnesses give you insider tips on the legal nurse consultant’s role in the complex world of medical malpractice. Barbara Levin and Pat Iyer have combined 40 plus years reviewing cases as expert witnesses; they’ll share their deep knowledge with you. You’ll hear about their most memorable cases and what lessons you may learn from them.
This program was very thorough and helpful to me particularly speaking to what is not kept in the medical record and also the part addressing what is not in the medical record and the LNC digging through the report to determine what really happened. As always the program was well organized and very educational.
