Connecticut Medical Negligence Attorneys
Anesthesia has a legitimate purpose for many situations - as an epidural during childbirth; to reduce awareness during minor surgical procedures; or to put a patient to sleep for major surgical procedures. However, anesthesia is also a dangerous drug that can cause serious, life-threatening damage if administered improperly.
If you or a loved one has been harmed due to anesthesia errors, you may have a claim for medical malpractice. Contact the medical malpractice lawyer at Weinstein & Wisser, P.C. to discuss your case. We offer free initial consultations.
At Weinstein & Wisser, P.C., in West Hartford, Connecticut, we are recognized for our commitment to clients and our diligent legal representation. We offer caring guidance to families living the aftermath of serious trauma caused by negligence, such as anesthesia negligence. We handle medical malpractice claims involving:
- Anesthesia overdose: Too much anesthesia can cause severe brain damage, leaving the patient in a coma or causing a traumatic brain injury. Even worse, anesthesia overdose can slow the brain, heart, or other vital organs to dangerous levels, causing wrongful death.
- Inadequate anesthesia: We also represent patients who were given insufficient anesthesia prior to a procedure. This pre-surgery mistake can cause the patient to remain awake during the procedure or feel the surgical work being done - which may cause the body to react leading to the surgeon slipping with the scalpel or surgical instruments.
Whether a patient is undergoing a major operation, or a minor procedure, the anesthesiologist has a duty to provide a reasonable standard of care. If you or a loved one has suffered due to an anesthesia error, please contact our medical malpractice attorney to determine if you have a claim for recovery.
