The old duties of a lawyer are changing, today lawyers perform a multitude of endless tasks, from researcher to public relations specialist, advocate, medical bill analyst, the list goes on. The end result is to get justice and reward for both your client and business. But why go through unnecessary tasks when there are specialist companies that can save you time and money allowing you to increase your chances of winning the case for your claimant with a quicker turnaround.
Here are some points to think about:
How do you value time?
Is anyone’s time more precious than yours? Compensation claims can take up to 3 years to bear fruit. But if you outsource some of the paperwork, the less chance you will incur problems with your paperwork. Why not let a medically trained management company take this very time-consuming task off your shoulders? Being a specialist in this field they can find the information relevant and organise it into a medical summary that you, your customers, and experts can all understand. Meanwhile, you will be in a position to focus on the legality of the case.
You aren’t a medical professional
As a lawyer, you’ve gone through years of excessive law school and you possess impressive credentials in your field. You have endless experience and you know your line of business in detail. You”re actually an expert. However, you aren’t a medical expert, nor do you want to become one. For those who pursue compensation against the NHS, medical terminology may go into great detail. Medical management companies will have a wealth of experience and notice grey areas in service and practices to help provide evidence for a claim. Something you may not be trained to notice. Along with their legal knowledge, medical-legal services like medical review experts can find the details that you need and which is most important to your case.
Fees and invoice issues
So it’s clear that your time is far too valuable to spend on analysing medical records. But the right medical legal service can also save you money in other ways. NHS compensation claims analysis fees are not considered overhead costs like a complainant lawyer’s time, but instead case-related fees and expenses. Defence lawyers still need to review the report produced and their clients appreciate the better way of doing business. Quality medical-legal services will allow you to leverage the supportive details contained in the medical and billing records and thoughtfully prepare for the potentially harmful contents
They can save you from taking a difficult case to court or entering a resolution which is more than the cash value
Have you ever pursued a malpractice case which you knew you would win before you even filed the claim and then seeing you lose it when a seemingly small detail pops up? By using a systematic approach to all cases related to NHS compensation claims analysis with the proper skill set, a medical record management firm could efficiently analyse all documents and point out the details you might overlook or a physician expert might not consider outside of their speciality area. For a complainant lawyer, these details could save you from taking a difficult case to court and wasting your time and resources. When defending a case, medical-legal services can bring each of these strategic details up and analyse the medical bills for appropriateness.
You will save time and money on medical expert testimony
If you hire a physician expert you”re looking at spending a lot of money. The first hurdle is identifying the appropriate medical experts to hire, which is not simple, on top of that there is the expense of having each of those experts review the records before testimony. Medical-legal services can help you identify the most strategically advantageous experts for testimony then bring your experts up to speed efficiently with tangible reports and organised records. These medical summaries and chronologies, cross-referenced with the organised records, will have your experts ready for testimony in a matter of hours, saving you money as they prepare for depositions and trial. Medical-legal services ensure that your experts provide cost-efficient, strategic and knowledgeable medical testimony.
They can help you calculate future costs
A well rounded medical-legal services company not only can provide you with an understanding of the NHS compensation claims, but they can also help you anticipate future medical expenses related to an injury through life care planning. This is an important medical legal service to both sides in understanding settlement figures and coming to an agreeable resolution in evaluating injuries. If you represent clients in any case involving NHS compensation claims, seek the aid of companies specialising in medical-legal services: NHS compensation claims management, medical record reviews, billing audits and life care planning. You’ll be glad you avoided the headache of the alternative.
