Anesthesia Malpractice Attorneys in Norfolk
Handling Medical Malpractice Claims in Virginia
Your doctor has just informed you that you’ll need surgery. He explains the risks you’ll face, and the benefits you’ll gain after recovery. You agree to move forward, confident that your physician has your best interests at heart.
When we give permission for surgery, we also permit a trained anesthesiologist to administer anesthetics prior to the surgery. We assume that the anesthesiologist will act according to the latest guidelines and implement best practices. Most anesthesiologists are highly professional and alert. Unfortunately, some are not. Every year, anesthesiologists across America fail to take the necessary steps to ensure the patient’s well-being. The consequences can cause injury and, sometimes, death.
If you or a loved one suffered medical malpractice at the hands of an anesthesiologist, please call Kalfus & Nachman PC at (855) 880-8163 for a free consultation to review your case with a Norfolk medical malpractice lawyer.
Negligence & Incompetence
Most cases of anesthesia malpractice are not intended to harm the patient. People make mistakes. However, these mistakes are not acceptable in the realm of medicine, and the results can be devastating for the patient and the patient’s family. Allergic reaction to anesthetics is a common occurrence. Additionally, victims can be left in a persistent vegetative state (PSV) or suffer other types of brain damage. Sadly, the victim’s family may be forced to shoulder this unexpected burden, struggling under stressful conditions.
There are many anesthesia errors that can occur, including:
- Failure to conduct proper tests
- Dosage errors
- Misreading notes or prescriptions
- Badly performed procedures
- Failure to monitor equipment
If you have experienced malpractice while under the care of an anesthesiologist, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries, or on behalf of the death of a loved one. Loss of income, mounting medical bills, emotional stress and many other factors must be taken into consideration.
