There are few times when you are more vulnerable than when you are under anesthesia. You are literally putting your life into the hands of the anesthesiologist, who will administer the anesthesia drug and monitor your breathing and vital signs while you are unconscious.
When an anesthesiologist makes a mistake, the patient can suffer a serious injury or die. At The Law Firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, in Charleston, our lawyers advocate for those who have been injured. We also represent family members of patients who have died while under anesthesia. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Was The Anesthesiologist Negligent?
There are risks any time you go under anesthesia, and people can suffer serious injuries or die even when the anesthesiologist does everything right. However, if the anesthesiologist failed to meet the standard of care, and you are injured as a result, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice.
The following are examples of anesthesiology errors that shouldn't happen:
- Administering the wrong anesthetic
- Administering the wrong dose of an anesthetic
- Failure to monitor a patient's vital signs while he or she is under
- Leaving the operating room while the patient is under
Our attorneys work with medical experts who will review your case and determine if you have a strong case of medical malpractice. We have decades of experience handling all types of medical malpractice cases, including those involving surgery and anesthesia errors.
