Medical Malpractice / Informed Consent Failure

Texas Medical Malpractice: When Treatment Becomes a Harm – Law Office of Paul Previte

You Trusted Your Doctor. Now You’re Facing Unforeseen Consequences.

Medical professionals play a vital role in our lives. We entrust them with our health and well-being, expecting them to provide skilled care and honest information about treatment options. But sometimes, things go wrong. If you’ve been injured due to medical malpractice or a failure to obtain informed consent in Texas, you have rights. The Law Office of Paul Previte can help you navigate the legal complexities and fight for the compensation you deserve.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, deviates from the accepted standard of care, resulting in injury to the patient. This deviation can take many forms, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis: Failure to correctly identify a medical condition can lead to delayed or improper treatment, worsening the patient’s outcome.
  • Surgical errors: Mistakes during surgery can cause serious complications and permanent injuries.
  • Prescription medication errors: Prescribing the wrong medication, dosage, or failing to consider allergies can lead to adverse reactions.
  • Anesthesia errors: Improper administration of anesthesia can cause breathing problems, cardiac arrest, or even brain damage.
  • Failure to obtain informed consent: Before any medical procedure, patients have the right to understand the risks, benefits, and alternative treatment options. If a doctor fails to provide this information or misrepresents the potential outcomes, a patient may be unable to make an informed decision about their care.

Informed Consent: Your Right to Know

Texas law mandates that healthcare providers obtain informed consent before performing any medical procedure. This means a doctor must explain the following in clear and understandable language:

  • The nature of the proposed treatment or procedure
  • The potential risks and complications involved
  • The benefits of the treatment and alternative treatment options
  • The potential outcomes if no treatment is given

By understanding these details, patients can make informed decisions about their healthcare.

When Consent Goes Wrong

Failure to obtain informed consent can occur if:

  • The doctor fails to disclose all material risks associated with the treatment.
  • The doctor misrepresents the potential outcomes.
  • The patient is pressured into consenting to a procedure they don’t fully understand.

If you suffer harm due to a medical procedure and learn you weren’t properly informed of the risks, you may have a case for medical malpractice based on informed consent failure.
