Lack of Informed Consent

Lack of Informed ConsentWhen you go to a doctor or hospital to receive medical care and treatment, especially surgery, you assume that the doctors will fully inform you of all of the risks and benefits of treatment so that you can make a sound decision. Unfortunately, that is not always the case; and, in some instances, the failure to allow a patient to make an informed choice about their medical care can constitute medical malpractice. In order to hold a doctor, hospital or other medical provider responsible in a medical malpractice lawsuit for failing to give you the information you need to make an informed decision about your medical treatment (failing to obtain “informed consent” from you as their patient), you must prove that you would not have opted to receive certain treatment that caused you harm had you been fully informed about the risks.

Our team of New York and Bronx medical negligence and medical malpractice attorneys are standing by to help you determine if you have been the victim of medical malpractice due to a failure to obtain informed consent. Call my law firm today at (718) 354-8000 for a free consultation to determine if you can hold a doctor or hospital responsible for medical malpractice and medical negligence for failing to tell you the truth about your medical care and treatment.

Client Testimonials

When I got hurt after falling on a scaffold on a construction site, I could not work in construction anymore and did not know how I could support my family. I turned to Jesse Minc and I am very happy that I met him. He also discusses my case in Spanish with me when I want to, and that always made me feel comfortable. I believe that he is the best lawyer in New York City and I would recommend him to anybody who is injured.

After I was very badly hurt in a construction accident and could not work anymore, I turned to Jesse Minc. I have had a lot of lawyers over the years, but he is the best I ever had. Because I was a member of Local 6A Concrete Workers Union, I lost a lot of benefits, my pension and income when I got hurt and he made sure I understood how I could recover what I had lost. He and his team have been a Godsend to me and my family, and I am so glad that I chose him to represent us. Luke Rosa, Bronx, New York

My experience with Jesse Minc's firm was very rewarding. I personally dealt with Jesse Minc, who was a class act as my lawyer. He was always on call with any questions or help I needed in the process of my lawsuit. Jesse recovered a high six figure sum for a slip and fall accident I endured. He got the case settled in a reasonable time. If you are in need of lawyers for a lawsuit in New York City I highly recommend Jesse Minc's firm, they got me a very high settlement and were there for me personally every step of the way. Thanks to all the lawyers and staff. Salvador Ruiz, Brooklyn, New York

When I got hurt on a construction site and could not work anymore, one of my brothers from the Concrete Workers Local 6A union recommended Jesse Minc to be my lawyer and I am very happy I picked him to represent me. He really does have the human touch that a lot of lawyers lack. I would recommend Jesse Minc to anyone injured in a construction accident because he will fight to the end of the earth for his clients. Joseph Toro, Bronx, New York
