Health care professionals are legally responsible to inform patients of any possible outcomes or side effects that may be associated with their preferred treatment plan. Whether the treatment plan includes the prescription of a drug or is more serious and requires surgery to be preformed, a doctor must obtain the informed consent of the patient before any treatment is carried out. A doctor may be found liable for any injuries that a patient could develop from a treatment that was not agreed upon by the patient. Treatments and procedures that are performed without informed consent could result in unforeseen complications. These complications could cause permanent damage to a person’s health or even cause death. There are only a few exceptions to this rule. Emergency situations where a doctor must prescribe a drug or perform surgery in order to save the patient’s life do not require the doctor to obtain informed consent. If you are unsure whether or not your situation validates a lawsuit, contact an attorney. An experienced attorney can evaluate your case and help you decide whether or not pursuing a lawsuit is in your best interest.
