If Someone Signs a Consent Form for a Medical Procedure, do They Still Have a Malpractice Claim?

There are a couple of issues surrounding that. Signing a consent form doesn’t void out a client’s negligence. What the consent form may do is just limit the responsibility of the doctor for what he says you are consenting to. If he or she goes beyond that point, then they can be sued for negligence. Then the next issue is whether you knew and understood what the consent form was. That’s another issue and if you knew and you understood it, then that’s a separate issue which could have to be raised.
