In the days and weeks before major surgery, many patients suffer anxiety. They worry about infections, surgical errors and blood loss. But few worry about the conduct of the anesthesiologist. Patients have the mistaken idea that administering anesthesia is safe and foolproof — the doctor slips the mask on and the patient drifts off. The truth is more disturbing: Surgical sedation is extraordinarily complicated. Even the smallest anesthesia errors can lead to devastating consequences for the patient.

Skilled Anesthesia Error Trial Lawyer
Our staff has direct experience with anesthesia litigation, so we understand the complexities these cases present. Anesthetics are the most powerful drugs many people will ever encounter. They affect the body in countless and sometimes undetectable ways.
Our lawyer has experience with all of these types of anesthesia errors and knows how to take your case through every step of the litigation process from filing a lawsuit to settlement or resolution in a courtroom.
If you are unsure whether you have a valid case, you may need the advice of an anesthesia error trial attorney. Anesthesia cases are uniquely complicated; unlike many other types of personal injury cases, the victim in an anesthesia case is almost always sedated and unable to testify as to how the injury occurred.
We Have Handled A Wide Range Of Malpractice Cases
If you recently underwent surgery and are suffering unpleasant side effects, you may be an unwitting victim of an anesthesiologist’s negligence. We have earned settlements from negligent doctors in the following types of cases:
- Anesthesia overdoses or underdoses
- Failure to monitor a patient’s awareness level (patient wakes during surgery)
- Delayed anesthesia administration
- Failure to prevent known allergic reactions or drug interactions
- Intubation errors or tracheal injuries
- Pulse oximeter errors or other equipment failures
- Dangerous drug interactions
- Oxygen administration errors or delays, asphyxia
- Traumatic brain injury, coma and spinal cord injury
