Fatal Anesthesia Error Lawsuits

Anesthesia can be a miracle of modern medicine, allowing complex procedures to be performed while the patient is blissfully unconscious and free of pain. Lives are saved with the use of anesthesia, but it does not come without risk. Anesthesia can be fatal if not used correctly, and one error on the part of an anesthesiologist can jeopardize the life of a patient. When a fatal anesthesia error occurs, it can cause irreparable damage to those who have lost a loved one.

Anesthesia negligence medical malpractice cases are one of the most complicated types of claims to prove. Anesthesia has known risks, and it is possible for a patient to have fatal injuries from anesthesia. This is even when every precaution was used, and the medical team performed every step within the standard of care. However, there are instances where a life was lost under anesthesia due to human error, which is when a medical malpractice claim is necessary.

Anesthesia Negligence Wrongful Death Cases

It can be difficult to know whether a loved one who died under anesthesia was lost due to an error or whether it was an unpreventable tragedy. It is unlikely that a surgical team will admit fault, and the family of the victim may be told that their loved one succumbed to known risks of anesthesia. However, there is a trail of evidence that can be revealed if anesthesia negligence caused a wrongful death in a patient. Reviewing all records of the procedure, evaluation of equipment, interviews with witnesses and autopsy reports can all provide evidence of errors that lead to the wrongful death of a loved one.

If a loved one is taken unexpectedly due to anesthesia errors, it can be devastating for your family. No amount of money can bring your loved one back, but it can help with the financial strain and help to prevent further errors by the same medical team or professional. If you have lost a loved one and you believe anesthesia negligence is to blame, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss your claim during a free consultation.
