Anesthesia Errors

Print Page

Denver, CO Personal Injury Lawyers

Anesthesia is a critical component of modern medicine. From childbirth to open heart surgery, anesthesia has countless uses, and many medical procedures simply would not be possible without the administration of a local, regional or general anesthetic.

Unfortunately, the benefits of anesthesia are not without risks. From adverse reactions to errors during anesthetization, there are numerous issues that can lead to dangerous – and even life-threatening – complications. If you, your child, your spouse or another close family member has suffered due to an anesthesia error, you may be entitled to financial compensation for malpractice, and we can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Legal Representation for Victims of Anesthesia Malpractice

Anesthesia errors are among the most common forms of medical mistakes. In Colorado, anesthesiologists, surgeons and other doctors are held to certain standards of medical care. When they fall short of meeting these standards (for example, by administering an improper dose of anesthesia), they can be held liable for medical malpractice.

At Levine Law, we represent individuals and families in medical malpractice claims involving all types of anesthesia errors. Our attorneys have significant experience in medical malpractice litigation, and we work with trusted medical experts who know how to identify the signs of mistakes involving anesthesia. This includes mistakes such as:

  • Administering an improper dose of anesthetic
  • Administering the wrong anesthetic
  • Administering an anesthetic to the wrong patient
  • Failing to adequately monitor anesthetized patients
  • Failing to conduct thorough patient examinations
  • Failing to inquire about patients’ allergies and current medications
  • Failing to inquire about patients’ medical histories
  • Failing to review patients’ medical records
  • Failing to supply patients with the information needed to provide informed consent
  • Inadequate communication between surgeons, attending physicians, nurses and other medical staff

These and other mistakes can have drastic consequences. Under the worst circumstances, anesthesia errors can result in death by cardiac arrest, stroke or asphyxiation. Patients may also experience anesthesia awareness – a condition where they are unable to move or communicate but can still experience pain and other sensations. Anesthesia errors can also lead to:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Coma
  • Heart attack
  • Hyperthermia
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Seizures
  • Vision impairments

No one expects to be a victim of medical malpractice; and, since these conditions can have other causes as well, it is often difficult for patients and their loved ones to know for certain whether an anesthesia error has occurred. As a result, if you even suspect an anesthesia error, we encourage you to contact us. Your initial consultation is completely free and confidential; and, if it appears that you are a victim of medical malpractice, we will fight to make sure you are fully compensated for your physical, financial and emotional harm.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

I have known Andrew Phillips with Levine Law for many years and have a great respect for him as a person and a law professional. I never really needed his services for myself but last year a friend of my was having a lot of trouble getting a settlement due him from an insurance company. The insurance company just kept giving my friend one excuse after another. I asked Andrew if he could help my friend. I was amazed at what a great job Andrew did. He contacted my friend in a timely fashion and the matter was settled in no time. This wasn't even for me, just someone I knew. I recommend him highly. You will not go wrong working with Andrew.
