Lack Of Informed Consent — Medical Battery
In Texas, a patient must be advised about the risk of complications for any medical procedure, and the patient must be provided with the name of the person performing the procedure. Patients are required to receive specific information about the possible risks. 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 able to receive compensation for any harm caused to you.

Signing A Consent Form Does Not Rule Out A Malpractice Claim
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 medical malpractice caused an injury or illness. It is important to speak with a lawyer with experience in these types of cases, as the specific details are critical.

Founding attorney Jeffrey C. Anderson handles cases arising from lack of informed consent. He is a former commanding officer of a medic-training company at Fort Sam Houston. Along with that medical experience, he has been practicing law for more than 35 years. He can quickly identify the relevant issues in medical malpractice cases and build strong claims on behalf of our clients.

- 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
