While the majority of anesthesia errors were “near misses” and the patient was not permanently harmed, significant anesthesia errors have resulted in devastating consequences. These errors include inadequate monitoring and improper use of anesthetic drugs.
Poor outcomes from anesthesia errors include:
- Brain damage resulting from a lack of oxygen to the brain
- Heart attack or stroke during or immediately after a procedure
Anesthesia error cases are complicated and require the kind of medical malpractice experience that Kurt Lloyd and the Lloyd Law Group has developed over the last 30 years. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an anesthesia error, we can help you.
