Have You Suffered Due To An Error With Anesthesia?
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 Weinstein & Wisser, P.C., in West Hartford to discuss your case.

Compassion And Guidance During A Difficult Time
At Weinstein & Wisser, P.C., 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.
- Improper Administration of Anesthesia: Certain types of anesthesia may be provided through injection. If performed improperly, the injection can result in nerve damage. Further, patients must be properly positioned and cushioned by the anesthesiologist during surgery to prevent potential damage to nerves and tissues.
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.
