Legal nurse consultants at trial

Dear AALNC Members,

We, as legal nurse consultants, know the value we can bring to medical legal cases and claims.  Attorneys who have worked with skilled LNCs also recognize and appreciate us as crucial assets and vital members of the legal team.

Take, for example, the recent bellwether product liability trial involving Ethicon transvaginal tape obturator (TVT-O) system.  This case resulted in a $3.27M verdict!  AALNC Director-at-Large Debbie Pritts, an in-house, board-certified LNCC© for Wexler Wallace LLP, was an integral member of plaintiff’s legal team in the courtroom.  Her contributions played a direct role in their favorable outcome.

Another example, on the defense side, is a recent dental malpractice trial in which I assisted my firm, Fontaine Alissi PC.  Plaintiff alleged that a routine dental procedure caused him to suffer the onset of trigeminal neuralgia and asked the jury to award nearly $3M.  A defendant’s verdict was returned after only a few hours of deliberation!

What recent success has one of your attorney-clients celebrated?  How did you add value and contribute to that favorable outcome?

Warmly,
Julie Dickinson
