Anesthesia Errors: Coma, Brain Damage And Death
When your loved one comes out of surgery or another procedure requiring the administration of anesthesia with a bad result, you deserve answers and a solution to right the wrong. Unfortunately, that is not often what people get following an anesthesia error. Anesthesia-related mistakes often cause permanent damage, long-term disabilities or death.
At Leeseberg & Valentine, we can get you answers. We independently investigate every medical malpractice case that we handle, and malpractice by anesthesiologists is no exception. We collaborate with leading medical specialists around the globe, as necessary, to determine the cause of the adverse outcomes our clients have suffered. These specialists also often serve as medical experts in court on behalf of our clients.
Our firm produces maximum results because we believe that you deserve full and fair compensation for all past, present and future damages and losses related to the injuries caused by the anesthesia error or anesthesia-related death.
What Causes Anesthesia Errors?
Causes for anesthesia errors include:
- Preoperation evaluation oversights that result in the use of medicines to which the patient has a known allergy
- Failure to properly monitor the patient for signs of distress during the medical procedure
- Oversedation, which can put the patient into a coma or cause brain damage
- Anesthesia awareness (waking up during the procedure), which can result in severe emotional trauma
