Patients can often experience negligence at the hands of a medical professional at a time when they need to put their trust in them the most. For surgery and invasive procedures, informed consent needs to be gained from the doctor treating you and carrying out any surgery.
If the doctor does not gain this consent, then the law sees it as assault, and it can put your life at risk, especially if you do not know the consequences of what might happen. While there may be a complication, a doctor must provide a patient with sufficient information so that you can make an informed decision. These are commonly relating to the risks and side effects, and allow you as a patient to come to a truly informed decision about what you want.
At the Medical Accident Group, our lawyers have experience in dealing with complicated cases of lack of consent and patient rights. There needs to be careful analysis of professional guidelines and other publications issued by the Royal Colleges and other health trusts. They are very technical and the Medical Accident Group will never take on your case and get the compensation you deserve unless they know you have a strong case.
