Injury cases are often challenging and complex when it comes to proving the nature and extent of the injury, how it happened, and who was responsible.

Even before you ever decide to file a case, OnPoint’s legal nurse consultants can help you better understand the medical issues in your case, including causation and damages, so you’ll go into the case with a good sense of what the case is worth and what you’ll have to prove, along with any potential pitfalls you are likely to encounter.

Medical Expert Witness
Before you ever file a lawsuit, a medical expert can screen your case for merit, including completing any certificate of merit or affidavit of merit if required. An expert witness can provide you with the opinions and reports that will give you a clear understanding of the issues in your case. Our testifying experts include Board Certified physicians, nurses and allied health care providers who are practicing clinicians, vetted and willing to appear at trial.
In addition, OnPoint provides expert assistance in the evaluation of damages, including both economic damages and pain and suffering analyses. Our network also includes certified life care planners who can create a roadmap for your client outlining future medical costs and needs. We perform medical costs projections and bill reviews to help ensure you aim for the right settlement or judgment. Finally, our certified MSA providers will determine which portion of the plaintiff’s future medical costs are Medicare eligible and provide you with any necessary documentation or required reporting.
Legal Nurse Consulting
A legal nurse consultant bridges the gap between medicine and the law in litigation. Our team can retrieve your medical records, organize and index them, list missing records, provide a case summary and a detailed chronology of significant events and issues to ensure you are not blindsided by anything in the medical record. We don’t simply “recreate” the records; we summarize all the key medical information critical to your case strategy.
Our nurses can also attend defense medical examinations as a source of comfort to your clients and to be your “eyes” there. They will observe the examination, provide a written report, and create a rebuttal report or testify if needed. The nurse can also ensure that your client isn’t asked to answer questions, sign documents, or undergo exams not authorized by you that could harm your case. They can also contact you immediately if the provider attempts to exclude the nurse from observing the exam.
As a trial lawyer, you understand the value that visual aids bring to helping juries clearly see and understand the points you want to make. OnPoint can provide trial graphics, medical charts, illustrations and PowerPoint presentations that help you make your case in a compelling and persuasive fashion. Medical care timelines, causation and damages charts, and before and after presentations, can help explain complex medical concepts or show what your client has been through in an understandable fashion, whether you are educating the judge, jury, opposing counsel, mediator or insurance company adjustors.
