Part of our mission as health advocates is to help navigate the complexities of the healthcare industry so the plaintiff attorney can focus on his/her practice.

As a plaintiff attorney some of the reasons we can assist as healthcare advocates consist of:

  1. Expertise: Healthcare advocates are knowledgeable about the healthcare system, including medical procedures, insurance coverage, and billing. They can provide valuable insights into a client’s medical condition, treatment options, and potential future care needs. This information can help the attorney build a stronger case and negotiate a fair settlement.
  2. Coordination: Healthcare advocates can help coordinate a client’s medical care, ensuring that they receive appropriate treatment and follow-up care. This can be especially important for clients who have complex medical needs or who require ongoing care after an injury or illness.
  3. Cost savings: Healthcare advocates can help clients navigate the complex world of medical billing and insurance, potentially saving them money on medical expenses. This can be particularly important in personal injury cases where the client may have significant medical bills that need to be paid.

A healthcare advocate can provide valuable support in a wide range of plaintiff cases where medical care and treatment are at issue. Here are some examples:

  1. Personal injury: In cases where a plaintiff has suffered a physical injury, a healthcare advocate can help coordinate their medical care and ensure that they receive appropriate treatment. This can include helping them find the right doctors and specialists, scheduling appointments, and navigating the medical billing and insurance process.
  2. Medical malpractice: In cases where a plaintiff has been harmed as a result of medical negligence or malpractice, a healthcare advocate can provide expertise in the medical field and help the attorney build a strong case. They can review medical records, consult with medical experts, and provide guidance on the plaintiff’s ongoing medical needs.
  3. Workers’ compensation: In cases where a plaintiff has been injured on the job, a healthcare advocate can help ensure that they receive the appropriate medical care and treatment covered under workers’ compensation insurance. They can also help coordinate rehabilitation and other services to help the plaintiff recover from their injury.
  4. Social security disability: In cases where a plaintiff is seeking social security disability benefits due to a medical condition, a healthcare advocate can provide guidance on the medical evidence needed to support the claim. They can also help ensure that the plaintiff receives the appropriate medical care and treatment to manage their condition.

Overall, a healthcare advocate can provide valuable support to a plaintiff attorney and their client by offering expertise, coordination, and cost savings in the area of medical care. Any plaintiff case where medical care and treatment are at issue can benefit from the expertise and support of a healthcare advocate. They can help ensure that the plaintiff receives the best possible care and treatment, and provide valuable insights and guidance to the attorney.   www.specialtyallocations.com
