Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Attorney
When a patient is going in to surgery, or any other medical procedure in which they may experience pain, an anesthesiologist administers anesthesia to the patient, to reduce their pain, or help them go to sleep for the procedure. We rely on anesthesiologists and doctors to administer the proper amount of this potent type of drug and to carefully monitor us while we under its affects. However, if a mistake is made, either by administering too much, or too little, not monitoring breathing and oxygen levels while under anesthesia, or administering a type of anesthesia that the patient is allergic to, the results can be devastating. If you or a loved one was injured because of an anesthesia error, you may have a medical malpractice claim against the health care providers that you put your trust in. Contact a Los Angeles medical malpractice lawyer from our firm today to discuss your case and see if you have legal recourse against these individuals.
Too much anesthesia, if it doesn't kill a patient, can result in seriously traumatic medical conditions that the patient may have to live with for the rest of their lives. These can include the following:
If you or a loved one experienced any of the above, or more, due to an error in anesthesia, you need legal representation. If your loved one died as a result of a doctor or anesthesiologist's negligence, you may have a viable wrongful death claim. While no amount of money can ever make up for the devastation of these medical maladies, a settlement or judgment in your favor can help you with the cost of your medical bills and pain and suffering.
