Lawyer For People Injured While Under Anesthesia
Even though this pain-blocking method is considered effective and safe, anesthesiologists can make errors that may result in serious complications.
Our partners at Bart Durham Injury Law are no strangers to medical malpractice cases, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you are entitled to for injuries caused due to an anesthesiologist’s mistake.
When anesthesia is administered, it is the anesthesiologist’s and the nurse anesthesiologist’s job to monitor the patient during the time they are incapacitated during the surgery. Some errors may be:
- Failing to monitor the patient’s condition
- Administering the incorrect medication during dosage
- Failing to recognize any complications
- Failing to provide the patient with preoperative and postoperative instructions
- Failing to monitor the patient’s oxygen
These mistakes may not seem like they can cause irreparable damage, but they can. It is imperative for an anesthesiologist to closely monitor the patient to make sure no harm is done, thus avoiding the ramifications of a medical malpractice case.
If the anesthesiologist fails to operate under the proper standard of care when it comes to anesthesia administration, serious damage can occur. The most common injuries that happen include:
- Nerve damage
- Respiratory damage
- Blood clots
- Brain damage
The outcome of an anesthesia error can be catastrophic, for the patient and family alike. If you find yourself in this unnerving situation, do not try to go it alone. Our experienced attorneys will fight on your behalf.
