It is the responsibility of health care professionals to inform a patient of side effects or other possible outcomes of any treatment plan that a doctor has recommended. Doctors are required to obtain informed consent before they begin a specific treatment plan. The plan may as simple as prescribing a drug for the condition or may be as serious as undergoing surgery. If a doctor begins a treatment without obtaining informed consent, a patient may receive medical treatments or procedures that cause unforeseen complications. Emergency situations where immediate treatment is needed to save a person's life or prevent serious harm are the only exceptions to obtaining informed consent before a treatment is started. Having your case evaluated by an experienced lawyer will ensure that pursuing a lawsuit is the appropriate action for your situation.
