Experienced Trial Attorneys For Anesthesia Malpractice Claims
Mistakes made during the administration of general anesthesia can result in brain damage, asphyxia, comas and other signification complications. Patients may also suffer from a stroke or heart attack if the anesthesiologist fails to recognize the warning signs of patient distress during surgery. Anesthesia awareness, or the complete failure of the anesthetic during surgery, can also cause additional emotional trauma for patients who wake up during the procedure.
We represent those who have suffered serious injury or wrongful death as a result of:
- Improper or delayed administration of anesthesia
- Incorrect dosage or medication
- Using anesthesia or instruments that may cause allergic reactions according to the patient’s history
