Anesthesiologists are responsible for administering the anesthesia to a patient and for monitoring the patient during an operation. If an anesthesiologist fails in his or her duties, serious injury can occur to the patient.

There Are Many Causes Of Anesthesia Failure
Errors in anesthesia can have some very serious results. If your anesthesia was improperly administered or you were improperly cared for during surgery, it can result in awareness and pain during the operation, nerve damage, asphyxia, heart attack, brain damage or death.
Common causes of anesthesia error are:
- Anesthesia overdose
- Too small a dosage
- Delayed anesthesia delivery
- Allergies to the anesthesia
- Harmful drug interactions
- Failure to properly monitor the patient
- Failure to intubate the patient
- Incorrect intubation of the patient
- Communication among the doctors and staff
How Will Your Injury Impact The Rest Of Your Life?
We work with medical professionals to determine where the standard of care was deviated from during your operation. We consult with life-care planners to assess the full impact of your injury on the rest of your life, including how it will affect your ability to work and your overall quality of life. We assemble this information into a package to present to the insurance company, and we pursue the maximum amount of compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses.
