What is a Legal Nurse Consultant?

A Certified Legal Nurse ConsultantCM is specially trained to consult with attorneys on medical-related issues. A legal nurse consultant is a nurse specialist, who, related to their clinical experience, knows standards of care. The legal nurse can review, interpret and summarize the medical records and documents related to a case.
