New York City Anesthesia Error Attorney
Trusted Medical Malpractice Lawyers with 100+ Years of Experience
Anesthesiologists are extensively trained and highly compensated to safely and properly administer anesthesia to patients undergoing surgical procedures. This is a serious responsibility, as a patient’s health and life are at stake if the anesthesiologist makes any error in giving medication. Unfortunately, mistakes can and do happen for a variety of reasons, including incompetence, communication errors, fatigue, and more.
Anesthesia errors include:
- Administering too much anesthesia
- Administering too little anesthesia, leading to a horrifying occurrence called “anesthesia awareness”
- Improperly intubating the patient
- Failing to monitor the patient
- Failing to inquire about possible allergies
- Failing to consider harmful drug interactions
- Failing to provide the patient with proper post-surgery instructions
- Using defective medical equipment
- Delaying administration of anesthesia
- Failing to resuscitate a patient

You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income and earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and other damages.

Injuries Caused by Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesia mistakes can cause a number of serious injuries. Even those considered “mild” injuries can have a lasting impact for a patient, who may have difficulty trusting doctors or receiving medical treatment in the future. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not uncommon in patients who have survived a serious error at the hands of someone they trusted to take care of them.
Anesthesia errors may cause:
- Brain damage
- Heart attack
- Organ failure
- Spinal cord injury
