The law requires that patients give their informed consent before undergoing a medical procedure or treatment. Informed consent means a patient is aware of the nature of the treatment, the expected benefits, the material risks, the material side effects, any alternative courses of action, and the likely consequences of not having the treatment. If medical intervention was carried out without proper informed consent resulting in adverse consequences, you need to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you are entitled to at law.
