Anesthesia Errors Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Anesthesia allows for many medical procedures to be performed without pain for the patient. From dental treatments to major surgery, anesthesia is needed to allow doctors, dentists and surgeons to perform needed medical procedures, yet it is one of the riskiest components of receiving surgery. Anesthesiologists, dentists and surgeons receive specialized training to administer anesthesia. When mistakes are made, the patient can be put at risk of serious injuries or death.

There are many factors that are important to monitor and assess when giving anesthesia. The patient’s weight, age, health conditions and other considerations can affect the dosage and reaction to anesthesia drugs. In addition, the patient must be carefully monitored for reactions to the medication to ensure there are not complications. When there are medical errors made when giving anesthesia, a patient can be at risk of injury. Complications from anesthesia can include stroke, brain damage, allergic reaction, respiratory issues, nerve damage, blood clots, heart attack and death.

Medical Mistakes Involving Anesthesia

Even though there are some risks from anesthesia that are present even when everything is done correctly, other injuries are caused by medical mistakes. Some of the most common errors that cause anesthesia injuries include:

  • Wrong dosage
  • Not properly monitoring oxygen levels
  • Not monitoring signs of patient distress/reaction to anesthesia
  • Improper intubation
  • Not recognizing or reacting to signs of complications

When anesthesia errors cause injuries or death, this is a form of medical malpractice. The medical professional and facility may be liable for damages caused to the patient, including medical treatments, loss of income, pain and suffering and other expenses.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
