Vigorous, Aggressive Representation For Those Harmed By Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesiologists are highly trained physicians who specialize in providing anesthetic prior to surgery. These professionals play a vital role in making certain that patients do not experience pain during surgery. The anesthesiologist has the duty to evaluate each patient prior to surgery, and to monitor them during surgery. Failing to do so can result in catastrophic injuries or even death.
If you have lost a loved one in surgery, or if you or a loved one has sustained serious injuries, you need someone on your side who is ready to fight to help you get the compensation you deserve. You also need someone who will help you get answers. At The Epstein Law Firm, our law firm has helped families across New Jersey recover full and fair compensation following acts of medical malpractice.
Ready To Take On All Types Of Anesthesia Error Claims
Anesthesia errors can take on many forms, including:
- Intubation errors: The anesthesiologist is responsible for ensuring the patient is breathing properly during surgery. Failing to do so could result in the patient getting insufficient oxygen, which in turn could result in brain injuries or death. Improper placement of the intubation tube could lead to trachea or esophagus injuries as well.
- Dosage errors: Providing too much anesthesia could, in the worst cases, lead to brain injuries.
- Failure to properly monitor the patient: The anesthesiologist has a duty to monitor the patient’s vital signs during surgery. Failure to do so could result in injury or death.
- Anesthesia awareness: While rare, anesthesia awareness occurs when a patient who appears to be unconscious is actually awake during the procedure. This can be an extremely traumatic experience.

We will also devote ourselves to helping you and your family recover the financial resources you need now and in the years to come.
