Medical Negligence Claims Arising From a Lack of Informed Consent Prior to Medical Procedures

Medical negligence can arise if a doctor fails in their duty of care to provide a patient with sufficient information as to the options and risks that may occur as a result of surgery or other treatment. The importance of this was highlighted in 2015 when the UK Supreme Court upheld a claim for compensation where the patient was not provided with sufficient information or clinical options relating to her individual health and circumstances and suffered harm as a result (Montgomery decision).

If you or a loved one have suffered injury, harm or health complications arising from lack of consent or an incorrect procedure being carried out then our panel of medical negligence solicitors can assist. Examples of lack of informed consent include:

  • Injury or health complications caused by lack of disclosure of material risks of the procedure
  • Injury or health complications caused by duress or undue influence
  • Injury or health complications caused as a result of no interpreter being present
  • Injury or health complications caused by failing to discuss all treatment options
  • Injury or health complications caused by failing to consider a patient's personal health and individual circumstances during surgical planning
  • Failure in total or in part to complete a consent form (ie not dated or signed)
  • Lack of patient capacity to understand and appreciate terms of consent form

Our medical negligence solicitors are specialists in no win no fee medical negligence claims involving lack of informed consent and have gained a proven track record in fighting for an admission of liability and recovering compensation, financial loses, private treatment and care costs.
