What is informed consent?

Prior to administering certain treatments, such as invasive surgical procedures, doctors are sometimes required to obtain informed consent, which is a patient's signed agreement to undergo the treatment. In particular, informed consent is required whenever a patient is undergoing a potentially risky treatment or one that could cause harm; however, it is typically up to the doctor's judgment whether informed consent is needed in a situation.

If you've suffered physically, emotionally, or financially because of a doctor failing to appropriately obtain informed consent before treating you, it may be possible to hold that medical professional accountable in a medical malpractice claim.
