FAQ

What is a CLNC?

A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (CLNC) is a Registered Nurse who has successfully completed and mastered the CLNC program. The CLNC possesses the expertise to interpret medical and nursing issues in cases involving health, sickness, or injury.

Why do attorneys need CLNC?

Attorneys are legal experts, while CLNCs are experts on the healthcare system and how it operates. We do not intend to replace paralegals and medical experts. Instead, our CLNCs cost-effectively add to your existing knowledge and expertise with your legal team.

When should attorneys call a CLNC?

From the moment a potential case comes in, the CLNC serves as an invaluable asset by identifying the medical issues, screening the cases for merit, making sense of medical records and providing 30 other CLNC services relevant to the case.

Why should attorneys consult a CLNC if they’re already using an MD?

The services of a CLNC are far more cost-effective than those of a physician. CLNCs can educate attorneys about a wide range of medical issues. The CLNC saves time and money otherwise spent on expensive medical experts.
