Understanding Failure to Obtain Informed Consent in Ohio

Were you or a loved one injured because the possible consequences of a medical procedure were never properly explained? Did you undergo medical treatment that you never agreed to or that went far beyond the extent of your agreement? Did the manner in which the medical procedure was performed differ from what you had been told? If you answered yes, your medical provider may possibly be guilty of medical malpractice.

At Anderson Law Offices in Ohio, our Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys have established a strong reputation for achieving positive results for the victims of medical malpractice. We are seasoned trial lawyers whose primary goal is to obtain maximum compensation for the damages such victims have suffered — including pain, suffering, lost wages, medical bills and more.

You Have the Right to Fully Understand What Will or May Happen

During any invasive medical procedure, from undergoing major surgery to having a drug injected into your body, you have the right to make a knowing decision about:

  • What your doctor, surgeon or other medical provider intends to do
  • The manner in which he or she intends to do it
  • What the intended outcome will be
  • What the potential side effects may include
  • Any other foreseeable risks associated with the procedure

If you did not sign an informed consent form, or if the risks were not fully explained on that form, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for any resulting injuries.
