The primary role of a Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC) is to evaluate, analyze,
and render informed opinions on the delivery of health care and its outcomes
within the legal process. For over 20 years, LNCs have acted as collaborators,
strategists, and educators by offering support in medically related litigation
and other medical-legal matters.
LNCs practice in areas of civil and criminal litigation in which injuries
and/or medical treatment are factors, such as personal injury, professional
negligence and products liability. Many LNCs function as independent consultants,
controlling their own schedules, and offering their services primarily
to law firms, insurance companies and hospitals. Others are full-time
employees of such organizations, or work for the government.
