Anesthesia Errors

Your Legal Case After An Anesthesiologist’s Error Caused Harm

Hospital performing Anesthesia

When patients get put to sleep for surgery, they must rely on anesthesia care providers to keep them safe during surgery.  Anesthesia care providers are responsible for monitoring important vital signs including oxygen levels, blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing.   If you have suffered harm because of an anesthesiologist’s failure to adhere to accepted standards of care, we have the experience to pursue these complex and highly technical cases.

The following are examples of the types of anesthesia malpractice cases we have handled on behalf of our clients:

  • The wrong dose of anesthesia resulting in serious injury
  • An anesthesiologist’s failure to monitor oxygen levels for signs of hypoxia
  • An anesthesiologist’s failure to recognize a patient was not healthy enough to undergo the stress of surgery
  • Delay in recognizing signs of bleeding or distress during an operation

Although much progress has been made with regard to anesthesia safety, serious injuries and death from anesthesia errors still occur. Abramson & O’Connell, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, has been entrusted to handle these complex cases on behalf of injured patients and their families. We can help you pursue justice after an anesthesia error results in the need for long-term medical care, disability, and suffering for you and/or your family members.
