Anesthesia Errors

Our medical malpractice lawyers at the New York law offices of Dankner Milstein, P.C., have seen a great many anesthesia error cases. Many of our clients suffered harm after an anesthesia doctor committed a mistake before or during surgery.

In fact, technical problems can and do occur, and negative reactions by patients can be unpredictable. A trained, skilled and attentive anesthesiologist will carefully monitor a patient’s state of being during an operation. If something goes wrong, the doctor should take prompt action, respond appropriately and do whatever is necessary to preserve the health and well-being of the patient in distress.

Were you harmed or was your loved one injured during surgery because of a New York anesthesiologist’s error? The Midtown East lawyers at Dankner Milstein, P.C., can evaluate your case. We can inform you on your rights to compensation and help you pursue it.

  • Perhaps medication was wrongly inserted into a muscle rather than into a vein as intended. The consequence of this type of anesthesia error can be much pain, tissue damage and necessary corrective medical treatment. The operation may be botched and have to be done over.
  • Perhaps you were given an insufficient amount of anesthesia during surgery, resulting in excruciating pain. Proving that this type of event occurred can be a great challenge, but you have the right to be heard through legal action. Dankner Milstein, P.C., has the necessary experience and skill to represent you.
  • You may have had a very harmful allergic reaction to a sedative because you were not properly screened for allergies.
  • Your loved one may have suffered an irreversible hypoxic brain injury because of an intubation error in an emergency room, botched sedative administration during dental surgery or an anesthesia overdose in connection with any type of surgery. The result may have been cognitive deterioration, a comatose state and/or death.

Whatever the nature of the anesthesia error or surgical mistake that caused you harm, our medical malpractice attorneys located in Midtown Manhattan, Long Island, and New Jersey can advise you on how to obtain compensation you are entitled to.
