Medical Malpractice Settlement for Wrongful Death Lawsuit - Anesthesia Error

Comments (0)
We recently settled a wrongful death lawsuit alleging medical malpractice against a Lansing area hospital and anesthesiologist on behalf of the family of a woman who died as a result of anesthesia errors during a routine colonoscopy.  The lawsuit was settled for a confidential amount of money.  The suit alleged that the patient's airways were not properly monitored during the procedure and that she died as result of that negligence.  

Anesthesia errors and mistakes can lead to devastating injuries, including hypoxic brain injuries and even death.  The use of anesthesia poses a risk in every surgery and a medical malpractice lawsuit can only be filed if the patient was injured due to negligence of the physician and not just because a bad result occurred.  To prove a medical malpractice case in Michigan, there must be credible expert witness testimony by another physician that explains why the treating physician acted in a negligent manner.
