Anesthesia is often the most risky part of a surgical procedure. Many individuals are unaware that both poorly and properly administered anesthesia can be fatal. Anesthesia administration demands adherence to high standards and knowledgeable, experienced professionals who have obtained adequate certification. Anesthesia errors have been known to happen for an array of reasons. Often, it is due to carelessness on the anesthesiologist’s part—but other medical staff members, such as nurses, doctors, or hospital staff can also be held liable in an aesthesia malpractice case.
Did you know?
Anesthesia errors may happen in the operating room, after the procedure, or before the procedure in the waiting room.
Though many anesthesiologists are highly skilled and careful, when anesthesia errors do happen, the liable party responsible needs to be held accountable. You or your spouse or other family member may be eligible for financial compensation to recover economic damages such as medical expenses, future medical expenses, income loss and other monetary losses.
