Anesthesia is a Vital Part of Surgery, But Must Be Handled Extremely Carefully
Anesthesia makes surgery bearable by freeing the body from pain. But it’s has the potential to be incredibly dangerous. If it’s not administered in the correct amount, at the proper time, or in the correct way it can cause serious injury to the patient. Patients place tremendous faith in their medical care providers and the providers have a professional and legal duty to provide quality of care. An anesthesia error can even be deadly.
I Was Victim of An Anesthesia Error Caused By Novocain, Was it Medical Malpractice?
Similar to other medical professionals, an anesthesiologist has a legal duty to maintain a certain standard of care when dealing with patients. The standard of care provided must be a similar quality of care as the patient could reasonably expect to receive from another professional anesthesiologist. Failure to provide care up to this standard can result in the anesthesiologist being deemed negligent. Negligence can lead to a successful medical malpractice claim with potential for substantial financial recovery. No one expects to sustain bodily damage from surgery due to anesthesia. If you were injured by anesthesia there is a good chance it was done in error. If this has happened to you an attorney experienced in Sacramento medical malpractice claims should review your case immediately so you do not miss out on your rightful compensation.
