Michigan Law Firm Protects Against Informed Consent Violations
Call the Premier Medical Malpractice Firm in Michigan
Every patient has the right to control his or her own health care. Ultimately, they make their own decisions regarding the procedures they undergo. However, because patients are not usually trained in medicine, their rights are protected by “informed consent,” which means patients cannot truly consent to a procedure until they know enough information about its risks and benefits to make an informed decision.
It is the doctor’s responsibility to ensure that patients are fully informed about the medical care they receive—both the good and the bad. This is what makes informed consent violations a form of medical malpractice.
When a doctor does not provide enough information to patients to adequately inform them about the medical treatment they are about to receive, and patients are harmed, doctors should be held responsible. Fieger Law has been fighting for the injured and victimized since 1964.
Liability & Informed Consent
The purpose of informed consent is to respect the decisions of the patient in regards to their own body. If a doctor fails to obtain this informal content, they have committed a crime and are liable for medical malpractice. That is because the practitioner failed to provide the patient with adequate information.
