How does informed consent apply to medical malpractice cases?

The concept of informed consent protects the right of patients to make their own decisions regarding medical procedures. Doctors are obligated to fully educate their patients on the risks relating to a proposed procedure, the alternatives available, and their professional opinion on the matter. Failure to do so impairs the patients’ ability to make an informed decision, potentially leading to a situation in which the doctor is liable for the losses suffered by a patient who was not aware of the possible complications of an elected surgery.

If you have been harmed by a medical procedure about which you were not properly educated, the tenacious Cincinnati personal injury attorneys at Stepleton Dugan, LLC, can help you recover the compensation you deserve from the careless physician at fault. Contact us today at 513-321-7733.
