Help For People Harmed By Informed Consent Errors
When it comes to surgical procedures, medical treatments and other health care decisions, it is important that people have access to all of the information they need in order to make an educated decision regarding their health care. When hospitals and clinics fail to inform their patients of the details and risks of a medical procedure, patients may end up experiencing adverse consequences that would have kept them from agreeing to undergo the procedure in the first place.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice involving informed consent errors, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact us online or call 614-678-5072 to schedule a free initial consultation with our personal injury lawyers. Our cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means that we do not get paid unless we are successful in recovering compensation for your injuries.
What Do Informed Consent Errors Look Like?
There are a wide range of legal issues that can surround errors involving informed consent. Some of the more common errors may involve:
- Improper explanation of the procedure
- Leaving out important information that would have impacted your decision
- Failure to discuss issues that may have prevented you from undergoing the treatment or procedure
- Incorrect handling of your informed consent paperwork
Informed consent errors may occur in other ways as well. That is why it is important to speak with our attorneys if you believe that you have suffered harm due to not having all of the medical information available to you.
