Anesthesia Error

Anesthesia Error Lawyer in Los Angeles

We’ve Won Record Malpractice Results Across the U.S.

Anesthesiologists and other providers have important jobs administering the right type and amount of anesthesia to patients undergoing surgery or procedures in outpatient facilities. Because they use powerful medications, even minor mistakes can have devastating consequences.

If you or a loved one were injured because of an anesthesia error, you may have a medical malpractice claim against the health care providers who failed to meet the standard of care. This could be from negligence relating to:

  • Administering too much anesthesia
  • Not using enough anesthesia
  • Failing to identify potential complications
  • Failure to adequately monitor patients under anesthesia
  • Allergic reactions

At Bostwick & Peterson, LLP, our award-winning Los Angeles anesthesia error attorneys fight for victims of medical negligence. We have won over $1 billion in recoveries for our clients and have secured record malpractice results in multiple states.

Anesthesia Mistakes Cause Serious Injuries

Too much anesthesia, if it doesn't kill a patient, can result in seriously traumatic medical conditions that patients 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.
