New Braunfels Attorney for Lack of Informed Consent
Texas Medical Malpractice Lawyer Defending Your Rights
Sometimes when a doctor fails to completely inform a patient about the risks involved in a medical procedure, the patient will consent to treatment or surgery, without being fully aware of the real dangers. Although a certain level of risk is involved in all medical procedures, if a patient is not adequately informed of all the potential dangers associated with treatment, then they have the right to sue for medical malpractice, due to lack of informed consent.

Information You Should Have Before Giving Consent- New Braunfels, TX
Before any type of medical treatment, you have the right to know about your condition, all available options for treatment, any risks associated with receiving treatment, and what could happen if you don't receive medical attention. The doctor should inform you of all the details so that you can make informed decisions.
James Bettersworth offers personalized legal representation to all client's in need of legal counsel surrounding medical malpractice disputes, as it concerns lack of informed consent.
Understanding the complications that could result from medical treatment and knowing what the doctor's qualifications are to administer treatment is only a small part in deciphering whether or not you should give consent to surgery. You should also be aware of the alternatives and what the procedure can accomplish once it is completed.
