Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients and their families who have suffered injuries or death due to anesthesia mistakes made by hospitals and anesthesiologists. Many of these injuries are very serious, including brain injuries and paralysis. When an anesthesia error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
Anesthesia has traditionally meant the condition of having sensation (including the feeling of pain) blocked or temporarily taken away. This allows patients to undergo surgery and other procedures without the distress and pain they would otherwise experience. Anesthesia is a pharmacologically induced reversible state of amnesia, analgesia, loss of consciousness, loss of skeletal muscle reflexes and decreased stress response.
Risks of Anesthesia Procedures
The most common risks of an Anesthesia procedure are:
- Abnormal reaction to drugs
- Intubation injuries
- Injury to vocal cords or throat
- Injury to teeth, lips, and tongue
- Brain damage
- Malignant hyperthermia
These injuries may also be the result of medical negligence. Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers will review the medical records to determine whether your injury was the result of an anesthesia error or mistake. If the injury was caused by an error or mistake, we will file a medical malpractice lawsuit for you.
Medical malpractice lawsuits for anesthesia errors seek compensation and settlements for the injuries and harm caused by the mistake. This includes claims for pain and suffering, disability, and medical expenses. In cases involving the death of a patient, we will file wrongful death lawsuit for the surviving family members.
Statute of Limitations For Michigan Anesthesia Malpractice Lawsuits
