We have fulltime nursing in house. They can do our medical analysis, the medical review; they can help review whether we have all of the medical records and whether the medical records look like they’ve been altered in some way. She also can do the medical research, which a paralegal or young lawyer that doesn’t have medical background can do. They help me also plan for depositions and can communicate with our experts helping our experts get the records they need and helping them communicate with me to prepare me to take depositions of the defendants and the defendant’s experts. A medical nurse consultant is an invaluable tool. You need to have one in today’s environment.
