An extensive MLCS analysis concisely presents the facts of injury and recovery in lay terms, making it an indispensable educational or negotiating tool in the handling of a personal injury claim. Our high-level record analyses have yielded information critical to the outcome of tens of thousands of claims.
Since 1990, we’ve honed an effective, systematic process for summarizing and analyzing medical records. MLCS’ legal nurse consultants have extensive clinical experience, proven medical record expertise, and the educational savvy necessary to identify and extrapolate relevant medical information. We detect gaps and inconsistencies in the records and reported history, which can be invaluable in settling a claim.
Our consultants base our medical record analysis on three domains of information, distilling complex (and often disorganized) medical records into a clear, concise summary of the facts and key issues, with attention to the wisdom of current medical literature and generally expected care costs.
- Case Facts
- Current Medical Literature
- Cost of Care
Based on these domains, we then discuss diagnoses and strengths and weaknesses of the injury allegation from both the defense and plaintiff positions, presenting the best and worst case scenarios. Additionally, MLCS reports have a secondary review by a supervisory Legal Nurse Consultant at no additional cost, ensuring accuracy, consistency and quality.
