You Deserve Compensation For Injuries Caused By Anesthesia Errors
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.
The law firm of James D. Montgomery & Associates, Ltd., is a leader in the field of medical malpractice in Chicago. Our firm is home to many highly respected and accomplished lawyers who understand how to approach anesthesia malpractice cases.
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.
