What is Medical Legal Support? 

Attorneys should always be aware of an asset like AdvancedRM. One of many examples that can be found on our web site includes the story of Roger B. Roger injured his foot in a car accident but his insurance carrier refused to pay for it, claiming it was not a new injury. The carrier cited a lack of documentation from both the hospital and the treating physician, supporting the claim of it being a new injury. This sort of occurrence is a common catalyst for seeking out medical legal support from AdvancedRM. When the attorney was faced with the sheer legwork involved in gathering records in order to make a case, his only option was to call us.  So what is medical legal support?
