Anesthesia Errors are a Form of Medical Malpractice
The National Center for Biotechnology Information notes that the prevalence of medical errors in anesthesia within the critical care setting is an increasingly significant problem in the United States. Medication error is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the medical profession, and anesthesia and critical care are a part of this issue.
The main contributing factors to medication errors like anesthesia errors are:
- Modus operandi or the methods of operation
When you are injured as a result of an anesthesia error, you are entitled to compensation for the costs and damages associated with your injuries. The party that will be responsible for your damages will depend upon the source of your injury. If the machine malfunctioned, you could be entitled to compensation from the machine manufacturer. If a hospital employee made a mistake, you could be entitled to compensation from the hospital.
Whether a hospital employee or a machine was the cause of your injury, you will generally be collecting your damages from the insurance company that represents them. Insurance companies don’t work for you, they work for profit, and they make more profit by denying your claim if they can, or by paying as little as possible on it. Without a medical malpractice attorney on your side, the insurance company could take advantage of you and pay you less than you deserve, leaving you and your family to cover additional costs associated with your injury out of your own pockets.

Being injured during a medical procedure can entitle you to damages to cover all costs associated with your injury, including not only short-term medical bills and lost wages, but long-term medical expenses and lost earnings potential. Accurately calculating then demanding the amount your injury entitles you to is a complex and lengthy process, and requires knowledge of the norms of settlement for injuries like yours, as well as the law and local court procedure to be successful.
Putting together your own claim for medical malpractice while trying to recover from your injuries can be extremely difficult, and will limit your ability to recover what you deserve. Working with an experienced medical malpractice attorney takes the stress of the entire process out of your day-to-day life, with your medical malpractice handling everything from collecting evidence and filing a claim to negotiating and collecting the best possible settlement.
