Cleveland Informed Consent Attorneys
Ohio Professional Malpractice Attorneys
In many medical malpractice cases, one of the most important issues to consider is that of informed patient consent. Doctors, surgeons and hospitals need to explain to patients all of the risks that are inherent to almost all medical procedures. They also need to obtain written consent regarding procedures and accompany risks. When that consent is not obtained or is obtained improperly, patients can make uninformed choices that could impact the rest of their lives.

We understand how to investigate claims to figure out what happened, who was responsible and who should be held accountable for compensating the impacted individuals.

Cleveland Informed Consent Lawyers
Even when informed consent is obtained by a doctor, it may not always be obtained properly or in a manner that truly tells the patient what to expect in a procedure. This includes telling patients:
- As the patient is being transported to an operating room for surgery
- While a patient is under anesthesia or is being anesthetized
- Who lacks the mental capacity to truly provide consent such as elderly patients and Alzheimer’s patients
- Who are under the age of 18 and have no legal ability to provide consent
In order to fully protect your rights and the rights of those who you love, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible about your options. Statute of limitations run out, memories fade and evidence gets lost. Do not weaken your case by delaying the decision to contact an attorney.
