About Anesthesiologist Errors

Medical Malpractice Lawyer in San Jose

Anesthesia means having sensation, including pain, blocked or taken away.  In modern day surgery this is accomplished through the use of drugs or chemicals and is a highly specialized medical profession.  Without anesthesia, a patient would have to experience the severe pain and trauma caused by surgery, which in many cases would be unbearable.  Anesthesia can be done to a specific area of the body, a region of the body or can be general, where the patient is wholly unaware of pain, sensations and his surroundings.  There are always risks with any type of anesthesia and these risks can result in anesthesia errors.  When an anesthesiologist error results in injury to you or a loved one, a knowledgeable San Jose medical malpractice attorney may be able to help you receive just compensation.

Many times an error in anesthesia was preventable.  In these cases, the medical professionals involved did not live up to the standards for proper medical care.  At the Pacific Attorney Group, this is where we can get to work for you to investigate what actually occurred, what should have been done and who was responsible for the mistakes.  There are many causes for anesthesia errors and many adverse effects from these errors.  You have your good health to think of as well as your quality of life and we would like to help you restore both.

Causes and Results

Sometimes an anesthesiologist can fail to correctly inform a patient of needed instructions before, during or after their procedure, thus causing anesthesia errors.  Faulty equipment, not seeing or reacting to anesthesia complications and a failure to properly monitor the patient can all have disastrous effects.  An anesthesia dosage error, use of the incorrect anesthesia, anesthesia that is delayed, or dangerously long sedation are errors that can cause injury.  Either your doctor or anesthesiologist, or both, can be legally liable for anesthesia errors and need to be held responsible.

Heartbeat, blood pressure, breathing and other functions of the body can all be harmed with improper anesthesia handling.  In some cases infection, heart attack, stroke or brain damage can result from anesthesia mistakes.  In the most severe situations, anesthesiologist errors can result in a wrongful death that could have been otherwise avoided.  Anesthesiologists are trained medical professionals that need to be held accountable when errors are made and injury is the result.
