When Anesthesia Errors during Your Georgia Surgery Point to Negligence

If you have been injured because of an anesthesia error during your surgery, you may be entitled to receive compensation in a Georgia medical malpractice claim. When an anesthesiologist's mistake causes further injury, it may be a sign of medical negligence.

An Atlanta medical malpractice attorney can advise you of possible damages that may be recovered in a Georgia medical malpractice claim, such as medical bills, pain and suffering and other injury-related damages. In addition, the attorney working on your case will investigate the circumstances surrounding your surgery to see if one or more factors commonly known to cause anesthesia errors may have been at play.

The most common reasons for an anesthesia error may be signs of negligence and may include:
 

  • inadequate training or experience;
  • failure to keep the patient at a safe level of unconsciousness;
  • failure to address the patient's additional medications and the affects anesthesia may have on them;
  • adverse reactions to anesthesia;
  • overmedication;
  • under-medication;
  • inadequate instructions given to the patient;
  • delayed anesthesia delivery;
  • defective medical devices; and
  • improper product labeling.  


Regardless of the reason for the anesthesia error, you should not have to undergo further harm and suffering because of a medical professional's negligence. If you have been the victim of an anesthesiologist's mistake and suffered injuries, consulting with an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney should be your next step to determine if you should proceed with filing a Georgia medical malpractice claim.
