Juris Nurse Consulting is a nurse-owned healthcare consulting firm. We put our nursing knowledge and education to work for attorneys involved in medically related litigation. Our analysis focuses on the medical facts you need to win your case. We understand the basic legal elements of a negligence case that you need to establish. While evaluating a case, we keep those elements and other legal issues you identify in mind as we review your case.
Decades of experience reviewing medical charts and caring for patients at the bedside allows us to appreciate the nuances contained in the medical records that might otherwise be overlooked. Our reports are written to be understood by judges, juries, and attorneys without medical training. We do not take on cases we cannot efficiently handle. Instead, we will help you locate the right professional for the job through our extensive network of contacts.
