    No, you do not waive your right to sue for medical malpractice simply because you signed a consent form before your treatment.  Although every doctor, hospital, and surgeon requires all patients to sign a consent form before any surgery or procedure, this does not eliminate your right to file a lawsuit if you were the victim of a medical error or mistake.

  • Can I sue for medical malpractice if I signed a consent form before surgery?

    Yes. Every doctor, hospital, and surgeon requires that a patient sign an Informed Consent form before any surgery or procedure.  These forms are supposed to list the potential risks and complications to the patient from the anesthesia and the surgery.  Most forms list a large number of potential complications even if the risk is very small.  Essentially, the medical provider is trying to “cover all bases” in the event of a bad outcome or adverse event during and after the procedure.  Although there are potential risks with every medical procedure, a patient does not give up all rights to file a medical malpractice lawsuit by signing a consent form. 

    Patients do not consent to medical errors or mistakes, medical negligence, or medical malpractice.  Doctors and hospitals cannot avoid liability simply because the patient signed a consent form.  If you believe that you have been injured or harmed due to medical malpractice, you should contact our experienced attorneys today to discuss your situation.  We can determine if you were the victim of medical malpractice and if you have the right to file a case.  Call us today at (800) 606-1717 to speak with one of our qualified medical malpractice attorneys.
