Anesthesia malpractice claims can sometimes be difficult to pursue. If there is damage to the brain it could take time for doctors to determine the full nature and extent any injuries. However, once your condition is fully diagnosed, we will work toward an efficient and effective solution.
Anesthesia malpractice can take many forms, including:
- Administering anesthesia in the wrong dose or at the wrong time during surgery, the child birth process, or a dental procedure
- Failing to gather sufficient information during a pre-operative exam
- Failing to recognize that a patient is reacting poorly to the anesthesia
Anesthesia errors may also lead to larger medical malpractice claims against a hospital or other doctors.
