Anesthesia Malpractice

New York Anesthesia Error Lawyers

Decades of Winning Medical Malpractice Cases in NY

Although they are relatively rare, anesthesia errors do happen. When an anesthesiologist makes a mistake, the patient can end up suffering serious, even life-threatening injuries. In some tragic cases, the patient may even die as a result of an anesthesiologist’s negligence.

At Simonson Goodman Platzer PC, our New York anesthesia error attorneys have been fighting for victims of medical malpractice, including those harmed by anesthesia errors, for decades. We have been successful in 98% of the cases we have handled and have secured more than $200 million for our clients.

Common Anesthesia Mistakes and Your Rights

Anesthesiologists are highly trained professionals, but this does not mean they cannot and do not make mistakes. When these mistakes should have been prevented, injured patients or the loved ones of those who die as a result of the error could be entitled to financial compensation for their damages.

Common examples of anesthesia errors that may be the result of negligence include:

  • Over-dosage of anesthesia
  • Administration of too little anesthesia, leading to the patient feeling pain but being unable to communicate with others (“anesthesia awareness”)
  • Delayed administration of anesthesia
  • Administration of anesthesia to the wrong patient
  • Administration of anesthesia when a patient is allergic
  • Failure to properly monitor the patient while he or she is under anesthesia

It can be difficult to determine when a person has been the victim of an anesthesia mistake, but our attorneys work with medical experts and other professionals in order to fully investigate what happened and whether a medical provider was negligent.

Recognizing Over-Anesthesia: Symptoms and Risks

Administering too much anesthesia to a patient is a fairly common anesthesia mistake—and one that is entirely preventable.

You may be the victim of receiving too much anesthesia if you experienced the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Respiratory distress
  • Unconsciousness (prolonged)
  • Seizures
  • Hypothermia
  • Hallucinations
  • Brain injuries

In severe cases, receiving too much anesthesia can be fatal. If your loved one passed away during or immediately after surgery and you suspect that a doctor or medical provider was negligent, contact our New York anesthesia error lawyers right away.
