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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
