Anesthesia Errors

There is a reason why CRNAs (nurse anesthetists) and anesthesiologists have some of the most expensive malpractice insurance policies. This is because the injuries and damages caused by anesthesia errors are very serious and sometimes fatal. What may have been a simple outpatient procedure can suddenly take a turn for the worse if the wrong dose, wrong medication or wrong administration of anesthesia is provided. If you or a loved one was a victim of an anesthesia mistake, you should consider your legal options.

Through a medical malpractice or medical negligence claim, an attorney can help you seek full and fair compensation for damages suffered. If a loved one unfortunately passes away as a result of an anesthesia error, a wrongful death claim can be filed on his or her estate's behalf by certain immediate family members. These are legal options that can be discussed with one of our knowledgeable and experienced anesthesia mistake lawyers. Call 937-557-0128 or 513-445-5017 to schedule an appointment at John D. Smith Co., L.P.A. Our law office is located in Springboro, Ohio.

When A Simple Procedure Goes Terribly Wrong: Anesthesia Mistakes

There are a number of ways anesthesia errors can occur. In many cases, it is because proper standards were not adhered to, letting a mistake in dosage or administration of the medication occur. These are errors that would never happen if not for the careless or negligent care provided by physicians, anesthesiologists, CRNAs and other medical staff. We will evaluate your situation to determine all negligent parties and take legal action against claims that have merit.

Other ways anesthesia mistakes occur involve:

  • Improper training or education
  • Lack of supervision of inexperienced medical care workers
  • Inadequate monitoring of the patient, including his or her vitals
  • Failure to adhere to protocols during the surgery or procedure
