Types of Anesthesia Injuries
Even a small oversight can lead to long-lasting injury when anesthetics
are involved. Such injuries can occur on account of problems ranging from
improper dosage to defective equipment. While a person may not notice
the effects of anesthesia errors during operation, they may become evident
as the patient experiences various problems with their health during recovery.
Symptoms of anesthetic errors include:
- Seizures or strokes
- Affected hearing or vision
- Cardiovascular problems
- Nervous system/brain damage
- Paralysis or coma
- Anesthesia awareness
In some cases, anesthetic errors may even prove fatal. If you believe your
post-surgery health issues were caused by improperly applied anesthetics,
you need a qualified legal team at your side. Our firm can guide you through
the extremely complex process of developing a valid
medical malpractice claim. We offer insight from an attorney who has more than 30 years of
former experience in malpractice defense, and we are equipped to help
you seek the evidence needed for an effective case.
