Many surgical procedures require anesthesia. Everything from major surgery to going to the dentist involves someone administering a drug to deaden sensation or to knock a patient out entirely. While most anesthesiologists administer their drugs correctly and appropriately, mistakes are made and serious consequences can be the result, such as:
- Allergies or hypersensitivity to the anesthesia
- Negative drug reactions from another medication
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord damage
- Heart attack
A Serious or Life-Threatening Matter
If you or a family member has suffered from the negligence of an anesthesiologist, that person should be held accountable for his or her actions. Hospitals and anesthesiologists may try to cover up these events or blame them on other medical problems to avoid paying the costs associated with the damage that has been done. This leaves you in pain and responsible for paying the medical bills associated with the recovery from their mistake.
