We Want To Make Your Case a Success

Our law firm wants you to be confident in our ability to do what is right for you. From the very start of your anesthesiologist negligence case, we will dedicate ourselves to getting you fair compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Anesthesia errors come in a variety of forms. All of them can lead to very serious damage to the victim. They can cause cardiac arrest and even brain damage or coma. No matter what the outcome, our attorneys can help.

More often than not, anesthesia errors are the result of improper monitoring. The administration of anesthesia is a very precise process. Patients need to be watched closely at all times. It only takes a moment for an airway that is not properly protected to create danger for the patient.

Other cases involve improper preparation. Staff must review medical records to ensure that the patient is not allergic to an anesthetic, as the reaction can cause serious harm.

While an anesthesia error is typically the result of an anesthesiologist's negligence, the operating surgeon or attending nurses may also be at fault. We will take great care to determine who is responsible and build a case with all of the facts used to support your cause.

Multimillion-Dollar Results in Anesthesia Error Cases

Over the years, we have developed a long list of noteworthy cases. That list includes one of the largest settlements — and one of the most promptly awarded settlements — in the state. An anesthesiologist failed to secure an intubation tube during a young woman's surgery. The woman suffered severe damage and slipped into a vegetative state. Although doctors said her condition was permanent, she managed to partially recover much of her mental function. Still, the damage was profound. We were able to obtain a $35 million settlement to provide for her future needs.
