Anesthesia Error and Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
If anesthesia is not correctly administered and monitored during a surgical procedure, serious injury or even death can result.
If the anesthesia error is the result of careless, untrained or reckless behavior on the part of the anesthesiologist, anesthesia nurse or other surgical personnel, then the victim — or the victim’s family — may have legal standing to bring a medical malpractice or medical negligence lawsuit against the health care professionals and hospitals involved.
Medical malpractice cases, including anesthesia error cases, are complex, costly and time consuming. If you have questions about an anesthesia error and your legal rights, it is important to seek early legal advice from attorneys with experience handling medical malpractice claims — so that you can obtain a clear and honest evaluation of your legal options.

At Doyle Law Team, we have more than 45 years of legal experience. More important, our lawyers have a proven record of success representing personal injury plaintiffs, including victims of medical malpractice and medical negligence.
For a medical malpractice case — such as an anesthesia error case — to be successful, it is necessary for the patient to have suffered a serious, life-changing injury due to the medical error. Many anesthesia errors result in brain damage, which is certainly a serious and life-changing injury. Other patients may suffer premature death as the result of an anesthesia error. In such cases, the surviving family members may have a claim for wrongful death based on medical malpractice.
