Louisville Anesthesia Error Lawyers
Litigating Cases in Louisville, Jefferson County, & Southern Indiana
Many medical procedures require that patients undergo anesthesia. Without this form of treatment, the pain and discomfort involved would be unendurable. Unfortunately, anesthesia does not come without risks. This means that that those who perform this type of medical care must be extremely diligent in their application. Anesthesia errors on the part of doctors can result in serious or permanent injuries or even death.
These errors can go unreported and thus uncorrected leaving you to suffer the consequences without the means for physical and/or financial recovery when injured. You may have not understood that your injuries were actually caused by this type of medical error. You may also have been reluctant to take on doctors, hospitals, or their insurers to seek the compensation and justice you deserve. At Grossman Green PLLC, we stand ready to take on this legal burden. Our accomplished legal team of seasoned trial attorneys have an impressive record of results in securing full and fair compensation for our injured clients in Kentucky and Indiana.
Anesthesia Errors in Medical Malpractice Claims
Anesthesia errors can include the following:
- The administration of too much anesthesia
- The administration of too little anesthesia
- Failure to monitor a patient while under anesthesia
- The administration of anesthesia to a patient with an allergy to it
- Failure to see adverse reactions and/or complications that require immediate management
- Failure to give a patient correct and thorough information prior to administering anesthesia
- Failure to protect an airway
Patients who suffer anesthesia errors can experience suffocation, brain damage, organ damage, stroke, birth defects, heart attacks, and more. These injuries can result in temporary or permanent damage, leaving patients unable to work or return to normal life.
To make a successful medical malpractice claim based on anesthesia error, you must prove your anesthesiologist, surgeon, or nurse failed at providing you with accepted levels of standard care in this medical specialty. This is a complex matter that calls for expert testimony and diligent case preparation.
