Lack of Informed Consent Lawyers

When passengers are injured on cruise ships, they are to be treated with the same medical standards as if they were in a hospital. Yet, in some instances, injured and sick cruise ship passengers are not given a chance to express their consent to medical decisions. As a result of this negligence, patients can suffer tremendously.

The lawyers at Louis A. Vucci, P.A. understand that patients should be able to fully understand a medical decision or procedure before they are provided treatment. When patients are not given the chance to express their informed consent, they can end up worse off than they were in the first place. Our lawyers work tirelessly to help clients like you seek the financial compensation they need to pay for medical expenses.

What Does Informed Consent Include?

Informed consent means that patients are fully aware of the decisions being made about their health. Ultimately, informed consent must include:

  • The nature of the procedure or medical decision
  • Any alternative forms of treatment
  • The risks and benefits of the treatment
  • Assessment that the patient fully understands the proposed treatment
  • Approval by the patient for the procedure or medication

If you were not provided enough information to give consent about your medical treatment and were harmed in the process, you may be entitled to compensation from the liable cruise ship medical crew.
