What services does Physicians Medical Review perform in mass tort cases?

PMR provides a complete medical legal consultant approach to mass tort cases which includes research and “intake” questionnaire development and response evaluations. PMR Physicians then determine which records are pertinent to the mass tort litigation, review the records, and identify pertinent medical issues in those cases. Under circumstances in which mass tort cases result in global or individual firm settlements, Physicians Medical Review’s team of in-house physicians and nurses provide medical record claim packages and evaluation to be submitted to claims administrators. Finally, when necessary, our physicians will find, interview, and refer medical experts for mass tort litigation including bellwether trial experts.

Does a review for merit include a written review, telephone, or e-mail response?
