Each year, an unacceptable number of people suffer anesthesia errors across the whole country. If you were hurt because of an anesthesiologist’s mistake, you may be experiencing different hardships, such as health complications and mental trauma. At Beebe and O’Neil, our Connecticut law firm knows how difficult it can be for victims of anesthesia errors to recover in New London, and across the state.
Anesthesia errors take many forms, whether a patient is given the wrong type of drug or too much of a certain drug. Other examples of anesthesia errors include waiting too long to deliver anesthesia, accidentally giving a patient a drug that he or she is allergic to, not administering enough of a certain drug and failing to watch out for interactions with other drugs. Aside from anesthesiologists, these errors may be carried out by nurses and other medical professionals as well. Tragically, these errors can even result in the loss of life.
If your life has been turned upside down because of an anesthesia error, you may be facing a myriad of problems. Whether you have sustained damage to your brain, heart or any of your body’s organs, you should do everything you can to restore normalcy in your life. If a medical professional has caused your suffering because of their negligence, their actions must be addressed at once.
