Boston Anesthesiologist Negligence Lawyer

There is very little room for error in anesthetics. When an anesthesiologist makes a medical mistake and a patient suffers, it is important to take prompt legal action to determine liability. While some injuries cannot be avoided, it is important to determine if the anesthesiologist was negligent in some way.

Anesthesia Negligence

Anesthetics are potent drugs that, when used improperly, may cause serious injury or death:

  • Spinal anesthesia may cause paralysis if given negligently.
  • A patient may suffer dangerous and life-threatening reactions to anesthesia.
  • General anesthesia may cause injury from a variety of causes, such as overdose and lack of oxygen.
  • Anesthetics given during labor and delivery may cause injury or death to mother or newborn.

Failure to monitor a patient while anesthesia is in effect can result in a positional injury - an injury caused when pressure is placed on an area of the body for a prolonged period of time, or when nerves have been stretched and/or compressed.

Most people don't know what to expect from anesthetics and don't know that their problem may be related to anesthesia. It takes trained professionals to discover why a patient reacted a certain way to anesthesia. Our firm will take steps to determine if a doctor or anesthesiologist was negligent in the administering of anesthesia or monitoring of the patient. Then, we will guide you in taking appropriate legal action to seek compensation for a wide range of damages.
