What is / isn't Lack of Informed Consent?
Medical professionals are legally obligated to inform their patients of potential risks during and after treatment. Even if the risk of injury is small, you are still entitled to that information. If a doctor fails to acquire your informed consent before performing a medical procedure, they would be liable for any injuries that subsequently arise.
Your doctor must explain and give you the chance to review the following information:
- The purpose of the proposed procedure
- The risks involved in the procedure
- Information about alternative treatments
- The chances of the procedure's success
- The estimated cost of the procedure
The following situations are not considered lack of informed consent:
- Medical emergencies
- If a patient's life is at risk
- If the patient has been rendered unconscious
We are prepared to hold the negligent medical party responsible for their actions in a lack of informed consent case. On top of physical injuries, medical bills, and time off work, we fight for compensation for emotional tolls such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, shame, grief, and more. We expect medical professionals to be just that, professionals. When we receive medical help, we are often at our most vulnerable and trust doctors to help instead of hinder.
