Established in 2001, Connect Experts is a progressive, one of a kind company that is expanding to meet the needs of Medical/Legal communities around the globe.
Connect Medical Legal Experts Inc. (previously CanLNC) was formed over 10 years ago when a lawyer approached our President - Chris Rokosh - to provide opinion on a obstetrical medical malpractice case. Now, with over 300 cases as an expert witness, Chris Rokosh is one of the most sought after labour and delivery nurse expert witnesses in Canada, as well as a sought after speaker on the Medical/Legal field.
Due to demand for other nursing specialties, Connect Experts developed Canada's premier nurse expert witness course - "Introduction to Legal Nurse Consulting" - establishing the Legal Nurse Consultant in Canada - duplicating the integral and valued resource to litigators in the United States (www.AALNC.org). We also developed our "Legal Issues in Nursing" course - connecting nurses/risk managers with practical lessons we've learned from examining so many adverse events.
Our growing reputation for quality of product and service then resulted in expanding our expert pool with physicians (now our most requested expert witness), pharmacists, paramedics, lab techs - any healthcare specialty.
Connect Experts has now provided opinion on over 1500 cases in Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean, provided experts and/or support on numerous class actions, provided input on government inquiries and many other cases.
We firmly believe that healthcare knowledge can improve legal outcomes. Quality, objectivity, diligence, and excellence in our experts enable litigators to represent their clients with a full knowledge of case issues, related standards, and received an unbiased opinion on the quality of the care provided surrounding an adverse event.
We also believe legal knowledge, and analysis and sharing of common healthcare mistakes can improve healthcare outcomes. Our "Legal Issues in Nursing" presentations continue to be sold out across Canada. This groundbreaking course boldly and openly discusses the invaluable knowledge we've attained in analyzing so many adverse events - providing guidance to nurses on protecting themselves from litigation by focusing on patient safety and excellence in documentation.
