How Does An Anesthesia Mistake Constitute Medical Malpractice?
Anesthesia is a significant medical procedure that reduces a patient to a temporary unconscious or semi-conscious state. The basis for a potential medical malpractice claim can occur when an anesthesiologist fails to properly intubate a patient or fails to properly regulate the patient’s breathing in surgery.
Other errors that may result in a medical malpractice claim may be the doctor’s failure to properly monitor the patient or give adequate dosage during a surgical procedure.
Generally, if a doctor uses an abnormally high dosage of anesthesia, the patient could go into an extended coma, and this can result in a serious injury or death. On the other hand, if the doctor applies a small dosage of anesthesia, the patient could wake up during surgery.
All of these factors, and more, warrant an investigation on your behalf. We are more than happy to review your potential claim in your time of need.
What Proof Do I Need To Take Further Steps In My Medical Malpractice Claim?
In the state of New York, to bring a medical malpractice claim, it is necessary to have an opinion from a physician stating your injury was the direct cause of medical malpractice.
This opinion will be based on a review of your medical and hospital records.
