Anesthesia Malpractice Attorneys
Serving Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and clients throughout Florida
The anesthesiologist is one of the most important members of your surgical team. This person is responsible for making sure you are safely sedated during a procedure so that you feel no pain during the operation.
When the doctor fails in this, you can suffer significant anesthesia complications. If this has happened to you, you should speak with our experienced Anesthesia Malpractice Attorneys.
You are at your most vulnerable while under anesthesia and our medical malpractice lawyers are prepared to act if the medical professional in charge of your anesthesia acted with negligence or misconduct.
The consequences of medical malpractice can be devastating and long-lasting. We’ll fight for you and your rights.
Common Anesthesia Complications
In general, most anesthesiologists are dedicated medical professionals who take their jobs quite seriously. However, they can still make mistakes and when they do patients suffer the consequences.
Some common anesthesia complications that our Jacksonville medical malpractice lawyers see include:
- Anesthesia that wears off during an operation
- Vocal cord damage
- Cardiovascular problems
- Nerve injury
- Brain damage
- Allergic reactions
Your doctors have a responsibility to ask if you are allergic to any medications they intend to use in the anesthesia procedure. Failure to do so is a breach in the medical standard of care and can lead to tragic consequences.
Our medical malpractice lawyers in Jacksonville offer free, no-obligation initial consultations. If you’ve been hurt by an anesthesia error, we’ll discuss your case and evaluate whether you have a claim.
Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Can Pursue Compensation
Every medical malpractice case is unique, and no lawyer can promise you a specific monetary award. The compensation available to you will be determined by the specific circumstances of your case.
However, our medical malpractice lawyers can usually pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)
You have rights as a victim of medical malpractice, and we can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.
