Things to Consider When Hiring a Legal Nurse Consultant:
1. You want to ensure your Legal Nurse Consultant is a good communicator because that is precisely what you are hiring him/her to do; communicate your case in a language that is easy to understand and can be utilized before a judge, jury, or another attorney to promote an outcome in your favor.
2. Your Legal Nurse Consultant needs to understand your needs and provide only those services necessary to assist you in building a strong case with the goal of a successful resolution.
3. Your Legal Nurse Consultant should be willing to learn your case, inside and out, providing efficient and effective communication, ensuring cost-effectiveness and time-saving approaches in the litigation process.
As time is money, a concise understanding of your needs and expectations is critical in providing only the services you want, and communicating in the manner and time-frame you request.
Your Legal Nurse Consultant must have a professional network upon which to draw necessary experts, often crucial to the case.
