VP Medical Consulting

Benton, AR: Victoria Powell, owner of VP Medical Consulting has recently obtained certification as an Advanced Legal Nurse Consultant. Ms. Powell is the first to obtain this certification in the state of Arkansas. Legal Nurse Consultants are Registered Nurses who use their expertise as a health care professional to consult on medical–related cases. There are an estimated 900,000 attorneys in practice with 25 percent of them dealing with medical malpractice and personal injury cases. The legal nurse consultant acts as a specialized member of the litigation team whose professional contributions are often critical to achieving a fair and just outcome for all parties.

Legal Nurse Consultants provide healthcare expertise to assist insurance companies, utilization review firms, government agencies, attorneys and private corporations related to medical or forensic issues. They screen cases for merit, interpret medical records, conduct medical research, locate expert witnesses, identify standards of care, and develop demonstrative exhibits for court. Legal Nurse Consulting began in the 1980’s, but is still relatively new in Arkansas. The American Association for Legal Nurse Consultants lists only 15 LNC’s in Arkansas and only three actively working in the field.

Victoria Powell can be contacted via the web at VP-Medical.com or by phone at 501-951-5353.
