Lawyers Helping Individuals And Families Recover From Anesthesia Malpractice

Anesthesia errors can result in devastating injuries, including paralysis, birth defects, brain damage, tracheal damage, spinal cord injuries and comas. Life-threatening injuries such as respiratory failure and cardiovascular failure are the most common injuries. Most of these injuries are preventable with proper monitoring.

Anesthesiologists are expected to provide a special level of care to a patient when they administer anesthesia. When an anesthesiologist fails to provide that degree of care, they may be liable for anesthesia malpractice. Some of the most common errors made by anesthesiologists include:

  • Improper anesthesia dosage
  • Improper oxygen dosage
  • Delayed delivery of anesthesia
  • Prolonged sedation
  • Failure to properly intubate
  • Failure to monitor
  • Failure to detect complications
  • Failure to attend to patients
  • Failure to communicate with medical staff
  • Administering anesthesia while impaired by drugs or alcohol

Our medical malpractice lawyers understand how devastating an anesthesia injury can be and are sensitive to the pain and grieving process of our clients. We look after your interests so you can focus your energies where they matter most.
