Helping Victims Of Anesthesiologist Negligence in New York

Anesthesiologists are highly trained and highly compensated professionals who are tasked with the responsibility of providing patients with medication before or during surgery. Anesthesiologists provide medication that is designed to alleviate pain and, in many instances, make patients who do not wish to witness invasive surgical procedures unconscious.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent anesthesiologist, nurse, or other medical professional responsible for administering anesthesia, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Hacker Murphy. We represent clients throughout New York State in medical negligence and malpractice claims.

Common Injuries for Anesthesia Errors

When anesthesiologists fail to properly administer medications, serious problems can occur:

  • Patients may suffer serious injuries, including brain damage
  • Patients may experience agonizing pain if a medication dosage is too low
  • Patients may die
  • Brain Damage and Cognitive Impairment: Anesthesia errors can lead to insufficient oxygen supply to the brain, resulting in brain damage and cognitive impairment. Patients may experience memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and other neurological issues that can significantly impact their quality of life.
  • Cardiac Complications: Inadequate monitoring and administration of anesthesia can contribute to cardiac complications, such as irregular heart rhythms or cardiac arrest. These issues can have severe implications for a patient's overall health and may require extensive medical intervention.
  • Allergic Reactions: Improperly administered anesthesia drugs can trigger allergic reactions in patients. Anesthesia providers must thoroughly review a patient's medical history to identify potential allergies and avoid substances that may cause adverse reactions.
  • Aspiration Pneumonia: Anesthesia errors may lead to inhaling stomach contents into the lungs, resulting in aspiration pneumonia. This condition can cause respiratory distress, infection, and long-term respiratory issues.
  • Nerve Damage: Incorrect placement of needles or catheters during anesthesia administration can lead to nerve damage. Patients may experience numbness, tingling, or even paralysis in affected areas, impacting their mobility and overall functionality.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
