Liver Failure Question concerning Mental Capacity / Confusion?
I have a good friend who suffers from liver failure, we believe brought on by side effects from a prescription medication. He was diagnosed with the illness in February 2006. At the time in 2006, a primary symptom was mental confusion (hepatic encephalopathy). This symptom was obvious to everyone who knew him going back to August 2005. In July 2004, my friend was persuaded to sign some legal documents which in the time since have not worked out in his favor. His business "partner" has taken advantage of him. My question is whether the liver failure could have clouded his judgement as far back as July 2004. And if so, whether this might be a reasonable argument to void the legal documents. If mental confusion became obvious to friends and family in August 2005, is it possible that he was not of sound mind to sign legal documents in July 2004? Could his judgement have been impaired back then without anyone realizing it? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

It all depends on when this all started. You would have to known when he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and how far along the disease was in 2004. This would take having someone, who has the rights to do so.. with a power of attorney document...to look at his medical records. If the cirrhosis was to the point where the toxins were going out into the body and pass the blood brain barrier and the doctor started to treat him for this.. it is possible that he may not of be competent to sign the documents. There is such a fine line here where the patient would be considered competent or not competent..it would be extremely hard to prove. I hope this is of some help. However, patients do sign for surgery of a transplantation the day of the transplant at times...so you can see that this may not be the case.
