From Medical Records to Courtroom: Legal Nurse Consultants on Injury Consistency

Injury consistency analysis involves evaluating how physics/forces on the body may have contributed to an injury accident. Personal injury matters are complex, because evaluations need to consider both the incident’s events as well as a person’s medical history. This means that medicolegal cases can involve a daunting number of complicated medical records, disorganized like thousands of jigsaw puzzle pieces in a box.

Rimkus Legal Nurse Consultants (LNCs) are master puzzle-solvers who use a wide array of skills and experiences gained in their professional medical careers to analyze medical records for injury consistency analysis, identifying factors that may not be obvious or readily apparent to attorneys, adjustors, or even physicians.

By working cohesively with biomechanical experts, Rimkus LNCs play a crucial role in injury consistency analysis. They help to define the complaints of injury that may have occurred during an incident and the pre-existing conditions that may affect an individual’s propensity to injury. Our LNCs are experts in performing in-depth medical record reviews, detailing factual chronologies, and providing narrative summaries. We specialize in the identification of missing records, key players, delays in care, and credibility issues. By delving into the medical records, an LNC can provide evidence that may assist in assessing the feasibility of personal injury claims made. This is vital to guide the biomechanical expert to the motions, forces, and mechanisms required to induce the injuries diagnosed.
