Analyzing medical records
A comprehensive review and analysis of medical records in injury or illness cases is an integral part of what we do. You have a story to tell to the jury and having the facts and evidence substantiated by an OnPoint legal nurse consultant builds your credibility and achieves a better outcome.
A Legal Nurse Consultant sifts through the records to create a timeline of critical events that serves as a working document throughout the case. We are licensed users of CaseMap which allows us to create customized timelines to fit your needs. The timeline can be a valuable guide to the medical record for your expert as it contains facts only and where to find the facts in the medical record.

Determining if a case has merit—before you start
Before a plaintiff attorney takes a medical malpractice or nursing home case, we can give you a preliminary assessment of its merit. Our consultants are unbiased and loyal only to the facts, so you can count on their fairness. If a case lacks merit, you can reevaluate your strategy without wasting more time and money. If you are a defense attorney, knowing a case is not easily defendable will help you make an educated decision on recommendations to the carrier.
A Review of medical records can include:
- Screening to identify strengths and weaknesses
- Assessing alleged damages or injuries
- Preparing medical summaries and timelines
- Differentiating liability and causation issues
- Identifing gaps in treatment
- Explaining relevance of past medical history and co-morbidities
- Identifying missing records
- Identifying potential defendants
- Explaining likely defenses
- Identifying potential deposition questions
- Defining standards of care
- Preparing a damages summary
- Preparing a Pain and Suffering analysis
- Medical cost projections
- Developing a Cost Projection or Life Care Plan
- Organizing records
- Helping you form the basis for your case strategy
- Identifying action items to move forward
Will these findings affect your case?
Reviewing medical records can reveal at least:
- Crucial medical details the plaintiff did not share with attorneys
- Incorrect dosage of medication or prescription drug abuse
- Inappropriate therapies
- Inaccurate diagnosis
- Adherence to standards of care
- Inaccurate assessment of damages
