Why These Cases Are So Challenging

Medical malpractice claims that involve negligence of an anesthesiologist are challenging and complex. Proving negligence requires an in-depth investigation of the events prior to, during and following the surgery. Those efforts require a dedicated attorney at a law firm that possesses the medical knowledge and financial resources to get to the facts.

We have handled cases involving all types of anesthesia errors, including:

  • Using the wrong drugs or the wrong amount to sedate a patient
  • Failing to monitor patient’s vital signs
  • Failing to perform adequate post-operative monitoring
  • Failing to anticipate or appropriately respond to adverse reactions to anesthesia drugs
