A merit screen, also known as a merit review, is a process conducted by one of our legal nurse consultants (LNCs) to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a legal case from a medical perspective. It involves a preliminary evaluation of the case’s medical aspects to determine whether there is sufficient merit to proceed with the litigation.
The purpose of a merit screen is to identify the key medical issues relevant to the case and evaluate the duty, breach of duty, causation and damages.
During a merit screen, our legal nurse consultant will review the medical records and other relevant documentation and create a concise picture of the records in the form of a chronology, summary of the case, and breakdown of the merit or lack thereof. Each report’s format can be customized to the client’s needs preferences.
Sample reports available for review, reach out and we can send you one to review during the consultation.
