How Will an Anesthesia Attorney Help?
Medical malpractice cases are incredibly challenging, more so than traditional personal injury cases that arise in Los Angeles. The reality is that medical professionals, hospitals, and health care systems have extensive resources at their disposal, including massive legal teams and well-funded insurance carriers.
A skilled anesthesia malpractice attorney in Los Angeles is necessary so that injury victims (the plaintiffs) have the resources necessary to stand up to these other parties. An attorney can use their own resources to conduct a completely independent investigation into the alleged malpractice. They will work with trusted medical professionals who can examine the situation and testify as expert witnesses on behalf of the plaintiff.
Importantly, an attorney will handle all negotiations with the at-fault party, their legal team, in their insurance carriers. If necessary, an anesthesia malpractice lawyer will fully prepare the case for trial.
Understanding Anesthesia Malpractice in Los Angeles
Anesthesia errors can occur in a wide variety of ways. Anesthesia malpractice cases can arise when a health care provider fails to meet the medical standard of care related to the administration of anesthesia. This can include negligence arising due to:
- Administering too much anesthesia
- Not using enough anesthesia
- Failing to adequately monitor patient vital signs
- Allergic reactions to anesthesia
- Failing to identify potential complications
Unfortunately, anesthesia mistakes can lead to severe injuries and even death for a patient. It is not uncommon for those who experience an anesthesia error to suffer from the following:
- Brain injuries
- Heart attack
- Nerve damage
- Spinal cord injuries
