South Florida Anesthesia Error Lawyers

Seasoned Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight to Secure Compensation for Victims of Anesthesia Errors in Palm Beach County, Broward County and Across South Florida

Anesthesia is a drug that is vital in almost every surgical procedure that is performed. Despite the necessity of anesthesia to the success of most medical procedures, the administration of anesthesia itself is actually one of the most dangerous aspects of any surgical procedure. Anesthesiologists receive extensive and specialized training for a reason—without proper administration of anesthesia, things can quickly go wrong for the patient, even if the initial surgery or treatment was relatively routine. Anesthesiologists are not only responsible for ensuring that a patient remains unconscious during surgery, but they are also the party responsible for monitoring functions as vital as respiration and heart function during surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Anesthesia Errors

FAQ: I lost a loved one because of an anesthesia error in a South Florida hospital. Can I recover any form of compensation because of this?

If the anesthesia error amounted to medical malpractice, our lawyers can bring a wrongful death action against the negligent medical professional, hospital or facility to recover compensation for your loved one’s medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of consortium or company, and even loss of financial support in some circumstances. Call us today and we can begin to evaluate the circumstances giving rise to your loss.

FAQ: What is the “standard of care” that is referred to as necessary in South Florida anesthesia error cases?

The relevant standard of care, or legal duty of the medical professional, varies based upon the circumstances of every medical malpractice case. In a case involving anesthesia errors made by your anesthesiologist, determining the relevant standard of care involves examining what a reasonable anesthesiologist with the necessary skills and experience would have done under similar circumstances. If a nurse committed the error, we would look to how a reasonable nurse trained in administering anesthesia would have acted. To show that the anesthesia error amounted to malpractice, we must show that the medical professional’s actions deviated from the standard of care, so as to cause you harm that amounted to medical negligence.
