ATLANTA, GA, December 04, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta legal nurse consultant Liz Buddenhagen, RN, has launched a new website and additional services to assist the Atlanta legal community.
Buddenhagen, who is certified by the National Association of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants (CLNC), said her company's newest service is assisting attorneys with Medicare Set-Aside issues. Her company's website is www.Legal-Nurse-Consultant-LNC.com. "We are experts in assisting our Atlanta attorney-clients apply the SCHIP Extension Act of 2007, as they settle Worker's Comp and liability cases. We provide the knowledge framework that ensures their clients do not settle inadequately with Medicare."
Buddenhagen has a 30-year clinically active nursing background based in a variety of medical disciplines, including critical care. "The best legal nurse consultants bring experience to the job," said Buddenhagen. "The nurses who work with me love clinical nursing -- and just as much, they enjoy the special challenges of applying their clinical experience to the legal world."
"Our firm provides skills that only an experienced nurse with legal nurse consulting certification can bring to a legal practice," she said. "And, our attorney-clients appreciate the fact that our hourly fees are much lower than an MD's. Our legal nurse consultants find the devil in the details like no other medical professionals can. When the time comes for a doctor's expertise," said Buddenhagen, "we know which MD experts to call in. Our job is to help Atlanta attorneys win cases."
Buddenhagen said her firm works closely with Atlanta attorneys whose law practices are focused on personal injury cases. "These cases are often complex and we dig right in to create timelines and assess":
--- causation and damages
--- the cause of injury
--- medical malpractice issues
--- the injured person's daily life, lifestyle changes and medical history
"Attorneys often ask us at what point they should call in a legal nurse consultant," said Buddenhagen. "We always have the same answer: the sooner the better. Early intervention by a legal nurse consultant yields the best results."
Buddenhagen says her firm works on any case where health, injury and illness are at issue -- plaintiff or defense. Her legal nurse consultant firm's practice areas include:
--- personal injury
--- product liability
--- medical and nursing malpractice
