Effective Representation of Anesthesia Malpractice Claims

Our experienced trial lawyers thoroughly review and investigate malpractice claims arising from the negligence of the anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or other medical professionals who may be responsible for the anesthesia mistakes or errors that caused our client's injuries or death. Anesthesia negligence may involve:

  • Pre-surgical anesthesia errors: Negligent calculations that result in anesthesia overdose can cause problems with intubation (increasing the risk for fluid in the lungs) and can lead to other serious problems, such as brain damage or death.
  • Anesthesia errors during surgery: Failure to monitor the patient's vital signs and adjust accordingly, failure to monitor the patient's fluid intake and fluid loss, and other anesthesia-related operative negligence can cause a patient to suffer from shock or other complication that leads to myocardial infarction (heart attack), brain injury, or wrongful death.
  • Post-surgical anesthesia errors: Negligent post-surgical management, such as negligent administration of post-surgery medications, failure to monitor post-surgery vitals, and negligent extubation can result in health complications that cause the patient to suffer serious injury or death.

Our attorneys know the challenges in pursuing claims for medical negligence. We work with Board-Certified medical experts to validate the negligence that our client was exposed to and work diligently to demonstrate the damages our client is entitled for his or her suffering.
