Medical Negligence/ Malpractice can take the form of many kinds of mistakes made during the diagnosis, treatment or management of your health. It can also involve the failure to obtain a patient’s informed consent before undertaking a procedure or operation. Talk to us your Medical Negligence attorney now.
“Informed consent” exists only if a medical professional has thoroughly informed a patient about all the inherent risks, benefits and alternatives involved in any medical or surgical procedure and treatment, and that the patient has duly given written consent prior to proceeding with the treatment. It sounds routine enough but you would be surprised and amazed how often written consent is not obtained.

Medical malpractice/negligence cases could include a variety of injuries and harms, including birth defects or brain damage suffered during the birth process that can result in birth asphyxia. The damages you suffer can come in many forms. This could include pain and suffering, the resulting costs of medical treatment later to rectify the negligence/ malpractice and in many cases, the loss of income. The loss of income can come from either for time off work, or because you can no longer work or can no longer work in the same sort of field that you did previously.
