QUESTION: Can I pursue a malpractice claim if I signed a valid consent form?
Contact a Iowa medical malpractice lawyer representing clients in Cedar Falls, Iowa today to schedule your initial consultation.
You may still be able to sue for malpractice. A consent form cannot release your physician from a duty to avoid negligence. You can still recover damages if you are able to establish that your physician failed to provide the proper standard of care, and that this resulted in damage or injury to you. You can also explore the possibility that your doctor performed a procedure that went beyond the consent you gave. This could even make the physician liable for battery.
