What Is Anesthesia Malpractice?

When an anesthesiologist’s negligence results in serious or life-threatening injuries to a patient, he or she may be held liable for medical malpractice. Attorneys Chris Mellino welcomes you to contact our Cleveland office with any questions you may have about filing a claim.

How Do Anesthesia Mistakes Happen?

Medical malpractice claims for anesthesia mistakes commonly involve the following:

  • failing to ask about a patient’s medical history, which could increase the risk of complications;
  • neglecting to monitor the patient during sedation;
  • using defective or unsanitary equipment; and
  • incorrectly intubating the patient.

Errors in judgment have caused serious or even fatal injuries, such as brain damage, heart attacks, collapsed lungs, and stroke. If you suffered any of these as a result of an anesthesia mistake, you may be entitled to compensation that addresses your medical costs, long-term disability, future rehabilitation, lost income, and other damages. If it resulted in the death of a loved one, you may be able to recover compensation for burial and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

If you have questions about an anesthesia mistake, injury, or Ohio’s statute of limitations, attorney Chris Mellino invites you to contact our Cleveland office for a free consultation. You may also download or request Chris’ free, easy-to-read guide to filing a claim.
