Surgery Error Attorneys Serving People With Severe Injuries Most people understand that the anesthesiologist is the person who helps you “go under” before an operation. The anesthesiologist does much more than this, however. Anesthesiologists administer a number of different medications that keep your body functioning over the course of a surgery. Further, anesthesiologists are responsible for monitoring your vital signs during surgery.It is not an understatement to say that the anesthesiologist holds your life in his or her hands. When anesthesiologists make mistakes during the course of a surgery, it can have profound consequences. If you or someone you love has been injured during surgery, and you have reason to believe that anesthesia errors caused these injuries, it is critical to speak to lawyers with extensive medical malpractice experience.
We are the New York anesthesia injury lawyers of Dankner Milstein, P.C. With offices in Manhattan, New Jersey and Long Island, we help people throughout the region harmed by medical negligence. We have represented many individuals who have suffered all types of anesthesia errors. Some of the more common kinds of anesthesia errors include:
- Spinal anesthesia errors
- Allergic reactions to local anesthetic
- Infiltration injuries (i.e. missing a vein and medication enters the muscle rather than the vein)
- Administering too much or not enough anesthesia
- Failing to monitor vital signs
- Administering the wrong type of anesthesia
