Our legally trained nurses dig through piles of medical records and pull out just what matters, creating medical summaries, appropriate lists, and valuable analysis in preparation for any phase of litigation. Medical summaries provide our clients with an easy-to-read narrative document that tells the story from a medical perspective. Because medical records are simply an account of what happened, medical summaries are objective and contain just the facts.
Great at any phase
Whether you are looking for a determination of merit, substantiation for mediation or settlement, or ammunition for trial, Med Legal’s Medical Summaries give you the well-organized, clear information you need. Our diverse team of Legal Nurse Consultants work together to present you with a medical summary that addresses all of your case issues, but is easy enough for any jury to understand – all based on your case medical records.
Critical to litigation
Without medical training, reviewing medical records can be arduous, but is certainly critical to your case. Understanding accident-related injuries, pre-existing injuries, the standards of care, future complications, and medical evidence of conditions such as toxic exposure is the key to providing your clients with the outcomes they deserve. Med Legal’s Medical Summary is your locksmith.
More than a synopsis
When you request a Medical Summary from Med Legal, you not only get a synopsis of the medical records, you gain the insight of a medical professional. With years of clinical experience, our nurses know the medicine of your case first-hand, allowing them to quickly and easily diagnose your case strengths and weaknesses. Their familiarity with medical records also allows them to navigate through your records with ease, leaving no stone unturned or issue unresolved. At the time of litigation, the analysis and intuition provided in your medical summary will be just the edge you need to get a successful resolution.
Identify strengths and weaknesses
Med Legal Medical Summaries provide you with discussions of the pertinent facts with integrated research, identification of future care needs, and a strong conclusion that validates the strength of your case. These reports can be generated for cases ranging from Toxic Tort, to Product Liability, to Personal Injury. For each, we identify strengths and weaknesses, present you with opposing counsel’s potential arguments, and point you to the exact medical records that will aid in a favorable outcome.
Medical records are often full of unclear medical abbreviations, terminology and lab work surrounding critical elements of your case. Our Medical Summaries clarify medical terminology in addition to explaining medical procedures, complications, and standards. With this clarity, you can proceed confidently into the litigation process.

And, because you get both an electronic and hard copy version of Med Legal’s Medical Summaries, you can quickly and easily share this document with co-counsel, staff and experts, and even opposing counsel.
