FAQs

Q.
Our firm has paralegals and legal assistants. Why do we need registered nurses to perform our reviews?
A.
The Marker Group’s registered nurses not only summarize the records, but can analyze the presenting conditions, treatment received, and prior medical, surgical and family history. Our nurses interpret the damages as well as any potential alternate causation for the alleged injuries. The nurses’ clinical training and experience make this more efficient than the efforts of a person with no medical training.

Q.
We already employ nurses in-house. Why do we need to use The Marker Group’s nurses?
A.
The Marker Group’s network of nurses and medical transcriptionists can complement in-house capabilities to handle excessive workload in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Often, in-house nurses are functioning at maximum capacity with their current caseload and are unable to handle the review, analysis and summarization of the voluminous medical records involved in a complex toxic tort, environmental exposure, or product liability case. Additionally, there may be times just prior to trial, deposition or other deadline when records are produced and need to be summarized quickly.

Q.
Besides reviewing medical records, what other services do your nurses offer?
A.
Our nurses perform case-specific medical research, much of which can be accomplished from our office, with copies of authoritative treatises and textbook excerpts obtained online. We review records for a number of different purposes, including analysis of liability and causation issues, assessment of damages, witness identification, and mitigation of damages based on alternate causation. The resulting reports are prepared in a variety of formats, with or without the nurse’s editorial comments. Report formats include the chronology of treatment, annotated chronology, and narrative summary. In some cases, we are asked to prepare a subject matter index. Our reports are customized to the attorney’s specification.
