Obtaining Informed Consent

Medical procedures including surgery, some types of injections including injections for chronic pain control, require that you sign a consent form. In some instances someone will sign the consent form but the procedure completed may not be listed on the consent form. I.e., consent signed for exploratory surgery, but not for the removal of an organ. But of course, with all malpractice cases, any claim will depend upon the standard of care that could be reasonably expected. Contact an experienced attorney for more information or to help answer any questions you may have.
