The use of anesthesia is an essential component of the surgical process. Anesthesiologists are responsible for administering the correct amount and type of anesthesia to a patient, as well as monitoring their response after the medication has been administered. When an error or dangerous reaction occurs, the results can be catastrophic. Anesthesia errors can result in serious injuries and wrongful death.

Anesthesia errors can include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Failure to monitor patient
  • Administering the wrong dosage
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Administering the medication too late

When we work with a client in an anesthesia error case, we start by identifying all potentially responsible parties. Next, we obtain all medical care documentation relating to the incident and work with medical experts to review and analyze that information. Once we are fully informed about the circumstances leading to the injury, we handle all aspects of the medical malpractice lawsuit through mediation, trial, and appeal, if necessary. We aim to keep clients educated and informed about the status of their claim.
