Medical Battery

Houston Medical Informed Consent Attorney

Lack of Informed Consent or Medical Battery

In Texas, a patient must be advised about the risk of complications for any medical procedure as well as the name of the person performing the procedure. Patients are required to receive specific information about the possible risks of the procedure. If a procedure is performed without securing informed consent from the patient, the result can be medical battery. If you have experienced medical battery, you may be eligible to obtain compensation.

Just because you signed a document does not mean that negligence is acceptable. Even if you signed an informed consent form, you can still file a claim if malpractice caused an injury or illness. It is important to speak with a lawyer experienced with these types of cases, as the specific details are critical.

Medical and legal experience combine to build strong cases

Our lawyer, Jeffrey C. Anderson, handles cases stemming from lack of informed consent. With medical experience and many years handling medical malpractice matters, he is able to identify the issues and build a strong case. We have obtained compensation for people who suffered damage because of medical battery in military or civilian hospitals and clinics. Our cases have involved issues such as:

  • Performing a procedure based on a misdiagnosis
  • Performing a procedure involving a previously unidentified problem without specific consent
  • Determining the precise limitations of an informed consent document
  • Performing surgery when not named on an informed consent document
  • Performing surgery on the wrong body part

Using our resources in lack of informed consent cases

Medical battery and lack of informed consent are two different legal concepts. Our attorney can advise you about the type of case you have. Frequently, a lack of informed consent case turns on whether or not the physician provided the accepted standard of care. Our attorney consults with a wide network of medical and surgical experts to identify deviations from the accepted standard of care.
