Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle lawsuits against hospitals and anesthesiologists when a patient dies from an anesthesia error during surgery. While there are many potential risks involved in every surgical procedure, there are many circumstances when a patient dies during surgery is the result of medical negligence. When a patient dies during surgery from an anesthesia mistake, the surviving family members can file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit for medical malpractice.
Common Anesthesia Errors During Surgery
The most common anesthesia errors during a medical procedure that can cause death are:
- Abnormal reaction to drugs
- Failure to proper monitor the patient during the surgery
- Use of the wrong anesthesia medication
- Allergic reaction to anesthesia during the procedure
- Improper intubation by the anesthesiologist
If you want answers to why a patient died during surgery or an out-patient procedure, don’t expect the doctors and hospital to tell you that an anesthesia mistake caused the death. Physicians and hospitals rarely ever admit to medical negligence and often try to conceal the truth from the patient’s family members. You need to hire a top-rated medical malpractice law firm to investigate the case for you.
Our experienced Michigan medical malpractice legal team will review the entire medical chart and then discuss the treatment with board-certified physicians to determine whether the death was due to medical malpractice. If there was medical mistake by a physician that caused the death, we then pursue a medical malpractice case seeking damages under the Michigan wrongful death statute.
Statute of Limitations For Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
The statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases varies from state to state. In Michigan, you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the malpractice. There are some exceptions for cases involving the death of the patient. If you miss a deadline, your claim will be lost forever. To avoid these severe consequences, you should contact our malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. immediately.
