In 2022, COVID continues to be in full swing. There is an ongoing and increasing need to provide medical legal consultation for victims of medical and legal mishaps. In this article, we will discuss how medical legal consultants can help in such cases.

COVID-19 Legal Investigations

In order to understand the role of COVID in criminal justice, it is important to have an understanding of what a COVID investigation entails. COVID investigations include a medical and legal side. On the medical side, experts and researchers conduct research, review medical records, and assess injuries to determine diagnosis. On the legal side, attorneys, as well as use experts such as private investigators and forensic experts, assess cases. With the help of these experts and conducting their own investigations, attorneys can work on building a case for their client so their client can be compensated if they were injured or had a loved one who was killed or injured due to the crime.

Help from Medical Legal Experts

In many cases, it is important that these two sides work together in order to provide justice for individuals involved in COVID-related incidents. Often times, medical legal consultants are hired by attorneys and can help them build a case using their expertise as both physicians and lawyers. By showing how the mishap occurred and the injury was a result of it, attorneys can put their client in a better position to win the case and receive compensation.

If an individual is injured or killed due to a medical mishap, an attorney may want a medical legal consultant to review the case and assess the injuries. Using this assessment, the attorney can build a case for their client or loved one and make sure they receive fair compensation.

As the American Association for Justice (AAJ) explains, “medical-legal consultants are experts in medicine and law.” They use their medical expertise to assist attorneys in providing legal services to individuals involved in personal injury matters. The AAJ goes on to explain that these consultants provide “services ranging from assessing injuries; determining appropriate diagnoses; reviewing medical records; consulting with physicians and other experts; testifying in court proceedings; assisting with the development of strategies for litigation; conducting research on medical malpractice cases; and preparing reports.”
