Anesthesia Error Lawyers in Austin
Anesthesia Errors Can Cause Permanent Damage
Although general anesthesia is administered without complications tens of millions of times each year in the U.S., the consequences are often catastrophic when mistakes are made. Victims of anesthesia errors may suffer brain damage, organ failure, coma or death. If you believe what happened to you or a family member was due to medical negligence, you should seek qualified legal counsel as promptly as you can.
Specific standards of care apply to pre-surgical preparation for anesthesia, administration of the drugs, and patient monitoring. Only a knowledgeable attorney, collaborating with medical experts, can determine whether negligence during one or more of these phases may justify a lawsuit against a medical professional or facility. At The Cagle Law Firm, P.C., we are prepared to investigate thoroughly and offer you clear, informed legal guidance.
