We Fight For Clients After Anesthesia Error

Anesthesiologists receive extensive training to ensure that patients are treated safely and correctly, before, during and after a surgical procedure. An anesthesia error can have tragic or potentially fatal consequences.

At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our attorneys represent individuals who have been seriously injured by anesthesia malpractice as well as the families of people who died as a result of anesthesia errors. To schedule a free initial consultation with us, call 877-216-4213 or contact us online.

Injuries Caused By Improper Anesthesia

Few medical mistakes are as dangerous as anesthesia errors. Victims of anesthesia malpractice may suffer a range of injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Coma
  • Heart attack
  • Paralysis
  • Stroke
  • Death

Proper patient evaluation before beginning anesthesia is vital. Furthermore, a patient under anesthesia must be carefully monitored to ensure that everything is going properly. If a doctor fails to act quickly or ignores warning signs, brain damage or death can be the result.

Why File A Lawsuit?

A medical malpractice or wrongful death lawsuit cannot undo the harm that has been done, but it still serves two important purposes.

First, the victim can receive compensation to help cover the financial and emotional harm he or she suffered.

Second, the responsible party is held accountable for his or her negligent actions. This helps to ensure that similar mistakes are not repeated.

We have the resources and experience to determine whether the applicable medical standard of care was met in your case. If it was not, we have the experience and skill to help you get justice and deter the same tragic mistakes in the future.
