I signed a consent form prior to my procedure. Can I still recover damages in a medical malpractice claim?
Yes, it is possible that you will still be able to recover damages even if you signed a consent form. If your doctor’s actions and treatment didn’t live up to standard medical practice, you may have basis for a medical malpractice case. While medical procedures are often risky and unpredictable, a doctor’s negligence has nothing to do with your consent.
