Anesthesiologists play an important role in the operating room and in post-operative care. When an anesthesiologist is negligent or careless in administering anesthesia, the patient can suffer permanent brain damage, paralysis or even death. While not all injuries that result during a surgical procedure are caused by medical negligence, if you or a loved one has suffered life-changing injuries while in the care of a surgeon, physician or anesthesiologist, you deserve to know what happened.

Do you have a case for anesthesiologist malpractice? Ask our doctor.

When something goes wrong during a surgical procedure, you can find it difficult to obtain an honest answer from the doctors who performed the surgery. Hospital or surgical center staff may also be vague, delay responses to your questions or deny liability. At Michels & Lew, we are dedicated to helping clients obtain the answers they deserve. We also have extensive experience pursuing compensation for people injured during surgery. Bradford S. Davis, M.D., medical director at our Los Angeles law firm, can review your case and identify whether your injuries resulted from medical malpractice. Contact us for a case evaluation.

Anesthesia injuries can result from:

  • Administering the wrong dose of anesthesia (frequently caused by improper calculations)
  • Failing to recognize when a patient is responding poorly to the anesthesia
  • Failing to thoroughly review a patient's medical history
  • Failing to monitor vital signs and blood loss during a procedure
  • Improperly intubating a patient
  • Other medical negligence
