Knowledgeable Lawyers for Improper Medical Consent Cases

Serious questions and doubts arise after a medical procedure goes wrong or has unexpected outcomes. In other situations, the patient has legitimate cause to question whether surgery was necessary at all. These situations, and others, raise issues of proper and improper medical consent as well as whether what occurred constitutes medical malpractice.

If you or a family member has suffered a bad medical outcome such as a serious surgical error, one of the avenues to explore is whether proper consent was obtained. Our experienced Illinois personal injury lawyers know the right questions to ask and the best angles to pursue in malpractice cases.

Thorough Investigation of Your Concerns About Surgery and Proper Consent

Illinois medical consent laws are complex. The many forms you may have signed under duress are virtually impossible for nonlawyers to understand and — as with most insurance policies and forms — most people sign based on trust. Further, just because you signed forms does not mean you have no recourse if medical malpractice occurred.

Our law firm is well-prepared to investigate your potential claim based on:

  • Failure to obtain proper, signed consent or other violations of Illinois medical consent laws
  • A surgeon's questionable decision to perform an added procedure or "go further" with surgery than you or your family anticipated — as when a total hysterectomy is done along with another OB/GYN procedure
  • Failure to consult a family member or other authorized person if you were incapacitated but surgery was not an emergency
  • Other forms of medical malpractice such as emergency room errors, sometimes accompanied by issues of improper medical consent
