What to Know About Anesthesia Malpractice Cases
Many anesthesia malpractice victims may be confused about what constitutes medical malpractice and who is considered liable for it. At Janet, Janet & Suggs, our experienced attorneys can answer any questions you have about your legal options.
What Is Anesthesia Malpractice?
This type of malpractice happens when an anesthesiologist commits an error during surgery. Medical malpractice means the anesthesiologist is negligent, or that they failed to uphold a standard of care, resulting in injury or illness.
When Does It Occur?
Because anesthesiologists generally work in operating rooms, these mistakes typically happen during surgery. However, malpractice can also occur before or after an operation or due to defective equipment.
What Injuries Can Result From It?
Anesthesia mistakes can lead to catastrophic injuries. Some of the most common injuries include brain damage, stroke, post-traumatic stress disorder, or even death.
How Much Compensation Can I Recover?
Compensation typically depends on the financial losses and non-economic damages you suffered. You may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning potential, and pain and suffering. If anesthesia errors caused the death of a loved one, you may also be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
If you believe that you or a loved one were injured by anesthesia malpractice, you may find yourself dealing with pain, suffering, and quality of life issues. It's in your best interest to contact a medical malpractice attorney immediately to discuss your options.
Each state has its own statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases. These guidelines determine the maximum amount of time that can pass before you can no longer pursue compensation. That means you have to act as soon as possible, so you don't lose an opportunity to recover compensation.
How an Anesthesia Malpractice Lawyer Can Help With Your Case
Anesthesia malpractice cases can be particularly complex. Your legal team must be prepared to make a convincing case against your healthcare provider. Because many medical professionals have powerful defense attorneys and may obscure evidence of negligence, these cases can become challenging quickly.
That's why it's critical to pursue your case with the guidance of an experienced malpractice law firm like Janet, Janet & Suggs.
