Anesthesia Errors and Medical Malpractice Claims
An anesthesiologist's work during surgery or a medical procedure is a critical role and one that demands constant attention and a clear focus on the patient. Managing anesthesia is not simply a matter of giving pain medication before surgery, but requires a doctor that is very aware of the status of the patient and can manage care throughout surgery. Even in situations of out-patient procedures a medication error or allergic reaction can have serious consequences.

The Dangers of a Medication or Anesthesia Error
If you or someone you love was the victim of an anesthesia error during any surgical procedure, you may be entitled to compensation as part of a medical malpractice claim.
Our law firm works to help you hold negligent doctors responsible for the pain or injury they cause. We work to find the financial resources for you to be able to deal with medical expenses, lost wages, suffering and damages associated with wrongful death claims.
These kinds of medication errors can come as a result of:
- Administering incorrect medication
- Allergic reactions
- Drug interactions
- Failure to properly intubate
- Failure to monitor blood pressure
- Failure to monitor breathing
An anesthesia error can have serious consequences for improperly monitored or treated patients, including anoxia or hypoxia that can even result in brain injury or death. An allergic reaction or drug interaction caused by the improper review of a patient's history can have a range of unpredictable effects including death.
Unfortunately, many doctors, hospitals and insurance companies may try to keep you from getting answers and finding out what really happened in the operating room. Our lawyers work to get you answers and where those answers uncover malpractice we are tireless in pursuing justice and compensation.
