We can assist with a med mal case concerning informed consent

A previous post on this blog discussed how Granite City, Illinois, patients can file a claim for medical malpractice based on a lack of informed consent if they were not given adequate information about alternatives to a medical procedure that wound up going wrong.

This is true even when the doctor performed the treatment correctly and the bad result was simply part of the risk of the treatment itself. In other words, Illinois patients have the right to know what they are signing up for whenever they submit themselves to medical treatment; the riskier the treatment, the more important this right is.

Of course, especially since a patient will like sign a slew of forms before a treatment that purportedly acknowledge and waive a whole bunch of rights and options that a patient might not even fully understand, proving and informed consent case can be difficult.

At our law office, we believe that when a doctor has made any kind of mistake, including a simple failure to communicate a patient's options properly, there ought to be a means of holding that doctor financially accountable for his or her patient's losses.

Doctors are, after all, trusted by their patients and paid to help them improve the patients' lives; when they fail in this responsibility, they should do what they can to make it right.

With over 100 years of experience between our attorneys, we have an established track record of investigating malpractice cases and then using that information and our knowledge of the law to hold negligent medical professionals accountable for their mistakes. Our goal in any of our cases is not only about getting money but also about making sure our clients feel that they have received justice after being hurt by someone who was supposed to help them.
