An Anesthesia Injury May Be Medical Malpractice

Anesthesia makes it possible to undergo surgery without feeling pain. Unfortunately, anesthesia also carries risks, especially if you go under general anesthesia. If the anesthesiologist does not do everything that he or she is supposed to do, the patient could suffer a serious injury or die.

If you or a loved one suffered an injury while under anesthesia, the attorneys at Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, are prepared to bring our 50-plus years of combined experience to your aid. If the anesthesiologist or other member of the surgical team was negligent, we will do everything we can to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve. We also represent family members in cases of wrongful death. For a free consultation, please call us today at 304-553-0830.

The Hazards Of Administering Anesthesia

The following are examples of anesthesiology errors that may be considered medical malpractice:

  • Administering the wrong anesthesia
  • Administering too much or too little anesthesia
  • Failure to monitor your vital signs while you are under anesthesia
  • Leaving the operating room while you are under anesthesia
  • Failure to monitor you after you come out from under anesthesia

Not every bad medical outcome is due to malpractice. If your anesthesiologist did everything he or she was supposed to and you still suffered a serious injury, there is nothing the civil justice system can do. However, if you were injured due to avoidable errors or negligence, our lawyers can help you seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent injury and other losses.

We charge no fees unless we are successful in recovering compensation for you. If we are unable to recover compensation, you will owe us nothing.
