Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 18, 2011
The nationwide network of legal nurse consultants and medical-legal experts has chosen the Association of Legal Administrators Legal Expo in Palm Beach County to debut its service offering to attorneys and insurers in South Florida.
“Medical-legal issues are more complex and faster-changing than ever,” says, Anna Morrison, registered nurse and co-founder of Legal RN Network, “and to be efficient, attorneys and insurers are increasingly turning towards legal nurse consultants and specialized medical legal experts to leverage their unique understanding of the complex medical and nursing issues surrounding a case, as well as today’s cumbersome health care system.”
“A legal nurse consultant is the single-most efficient and cost-effective team member when dealing with voluminous medical records that are the crux of a personal injury, medical malpractice, or environmental case,” adds Michelle Beck, registered nurse and Legal RN Network’s other co-founder.
“Physicians are effective, but charge hundreds of dollars per hour. Paralegals cost less, but may not have the clinical expertise and technical background in medicine to be as effective as a registered nurse. This makes legal nurse consultants the number one choice for attorneys and insurers looking for comprehensive, yet cost-effective assessment, analysis and medical-legal support,” continues Beck.
Morrison and Beck have put together an impressive team, as Legal RN Network’s consultants boast anywhere from 15-40 years clinical experience in every medical and nursing specialty. They also offer a dizzying array of support services to attorneys and insurers: over 30 to be exact.
These services fall within the broad categories of Medical Records Review & Analysis, Comprehensive Case Support, Litigation Team Health Care Liaison, Coordination of Expert Witness Testimony, and assistance with Discovery and Preparation for Settlement Negotiations or Trial.
To discuss your medical-legal support service needs with Legal RN Network's founders in person, please visit them at the Association of Legal Administrators Legal Expo at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on Tuesday, March 8th, 2011 from 3:00-6:00pm.
