Anesthesia Errors

Chicago Anesthesia Error Attorneys

Heavy responsibility lies on the shoulders of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. Their evaluations of patients and their administration of the correct type and amount of anesthesia are crucial to successful surgeries. When negligence occurs, patients can suffer devastating injuries and even death.

Our firm is home to many highly respected and accomplished lawyers who understand how to approach anesthesia malpractice cases. In addition, one of our attorneys, Beverly P.

What Are Anesthesia Errors?

Over the years, our Chicago lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in medical malpractice cases of all types, including $3.5 million for a young girl who was administered too much medication while under sedation. We have the experience necessary to pursue anesthesia error claims involving:

  • Failure to review patient history, including potential risks of giving certain types of anesthetic to a certain person
  • Anesthesia overdosing and underdosing
  • Administering the wrong kind of anesthesia
  • Intubation errors occurring before, during or after surgery
  • Failure to monitor vital signs while the patient is under

It is important to know that not every mistake made by an anesthesiologist will lead to a viable legal claim. However, if the error was the result of a failure to abide by accepted standards of medical care, then the case can proceed. When you visit the Chicago law firm of James D. Montgomery & Associates, you will receive a case evaluation from an experienced attorney, and honest feedback about the strength of the potential claim you may have.
