Failure To Disclose/Lack Of Informed Consent – Medical Malpractice Cases

As a patient in an emergency room, clinic or medical facility, you have the right to make choices about the medical treatment you receive. Patients who are uninformed may not even know the possible side effects or complications of a treatment. Inherent risks are involved in many types of treatment, and if you were not informed about the risks, you may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim. Wagners will represent your interests. We are a serious injury law firm that represents individuals throughout NS, NB, PEI and beyond.

Failure To Disclose/Lack Of Informed Consent: Violating A Patient’s Rights

Patients who are reasonably conscious, alert and able to make decisions for themselves have the right to choose what types of treatment medications are given to them in the event of an injury or illness. At the same time, physicians have a responsibility to disclose certain information about the type of medication or treatment they are recommending and ensure the patient is clear on the choices he or she has.

If a medical professional fails to disclose information or obtain informed consent from a patient, it can result in medical malpractice. Some examples of these types of cases include:

  • Failure to inform patients of risks of surgical procedures
  • Failure to inform patients of side effects of prescribed drugs
  • Failure to inform patients of potential defects of medical products

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
