Wisconsin Anesthesiology Malpractice Attorneys
Though anesthesia is regularly used in medical procedures, births, and dental operations, errors in anesthetic administration and dosage can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries to the patient. Examples of injuries that can occur due to anesthesia errors include:
- Collapsed lung
- Organ damage
- Permanent brain damage
- Teeth damage
- Nerve injury
- Awareness and/or pain during the procedure
Anesthesiology malpractice may be caused by an anesthesiologist or a technician administering the wrong anesthetic, giving the wrong dosage or delaying the administration of anesthesia, or improperly caring for a patient who has had an adverse reaction to the anesthetic. In addition to human error, faulty anesthesia equipment that results in injury or death may also be categorized as medical malpractice. This negligence can cause cardiovascular or respiratory disruptions that can lead to serious injury.
Anesthesia medical malpractice is not limited to mistakes made within the operating room. Failure on behalf of the anesthesiologist and the technician to ensure full understanding of detailed patient records regarding allergies and potential drug interactions may also constitute medical malpractice. Additionally, failure to educate the patient on food or alcohol restrictions prior to and following being anesthetized may be classified as a medical error worthy of legal compensation.
What Compensation will I Receive for Anesthesiology Errors?
Proving negligence in anesthesia medical malpractice cases is difficult, but the lawyers at Eaton John Overbey Jackman are committed to thoroughly assessing the medical mistreatment that you or your loved one has experienced and protecting the rights and interests of you and your family.
Filing a lawsuit against the individual or medical facility responsible for the anesthesia error that caused injury or death to you or a loved one may result in financial compensation. Anesthesia error attorneys can help seek damages for future medical costs associated with the injury caused by medical malpractice, as well as costs associated with the emotional scarring and psychological damage resulting from the pain inflicted due to anesthesia errors.
They will also be able to estimate the loss of future income for the patient and their family due to the injury. These damages may include the total time needed for recovery before returning to work or, in more serious cases, the complete loss of employment or change in industry due to the severity of injuries that resulted from the anesthesia error.
