Choosing Wise Words: Legal Implications of Medical Documentation

December 08, 2015

Conviction rates for Intimate Partner Violence criminal cases are directly correlated to the existence and adequacy of corroborating medical documentation. A recent Department of Justice Study found that certain types of evidence commonly found in medical records doubled the likelihood that the abuser would subsequently be convicted of the crime. All too often, this vital and legally relevant evidence contained in medical records is ruled inadmissible in court. A study by the National Institute of Justice analyzed over eight hundred statements from various medical records and found that approximately 28, or 3.4%, were deemed independently admissible in court. These rulings have little to do with the content of the underlying information; rather, the wording, level of detail and legibility of the records themselves are at fault.  Read More
