Anesthesia makes a wide range of surgical procedures possible and has contributed to countless improved and saved lives across the country. Anesthesia is also inherently risky, however, like any aspect of surgery. It must be administered properly and the patient must be carefully monitored to ensure the best possible result. If an anesthesiologist or other medical professional makes a mistake, the results can be disastrous.

Types of Anesthesia Mistakes
Anesthesia mistakes occur if an anesthesiologist, nurse, or other healthcare professional involved in administering an anesthetic or monitoring a patient fails to provide standard, reasonable care. Fatigue, inexperience, carelessness, or drug/alcohol use may be the underlying reason for such a mistake.
Our team takes on anesthesia malpractice cases involving:
- Improper dose of general or local anesthetic
- Epidural and spinal tap mistakes
- Failure to properly monitor a patient under general anesthesia
- Anesthetic contraindications
