Can I still file a medical malpractice claim if I gave informed consent?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Yes. While there are certain risks to every procedure and not every bad outcome will support a medical negligence claim, no consent form can release a health care provider from responsibility for truly negligent actions. If our attorneys can demonstrate that negligence or a failure to meet the standard of care occurred resulting in harm, you may still be able to bring a claim.
