Workers’ Compensation is a state run program that pays medical expenses and monetary benefits to employees who have been injured at their jobsites.
These claimants must prove that they suffered an impairment or incapacity that rendered them unable to earn the wages they were being paid, when the injury occurred, in the same or other employment.
The roles of a Legal Nurse Consultant are analyzing the medical records of claimants, and coordinating their medical care.
We can coordinate with medical providers, the injured worker, and the insurance carrier to see that the claimant receives timely, cost-effective, and appropriate medical care.
We can coordinate return to work plans with claimants healthcare providers, and simplify the injured worker’s “return to work” per the treating medical provider’s release.
