What is informed consent?

Before many types of medical procedures or surgeries, a doctor is required to get a patient’s informed consent to proceed. Basically, that means the patient is supposed to have made an informed decision about their medical treatment after a doctor has disclosed the potential risks and benefits of the treatment.

If the doctor or health care provider fails to obtain informed consent, the harmed patient may have a claim for damages. An experienced New Jersey medical malpractice lawyer can help you determine whether you have a claim and stand up for your interests if you file a lawsuit.
