Practice Areas > Medical Malpractice > Anesthesia

One of the primary concerns with surgical care deals with anesthesia and the medical personnel that is charged with administering such medicine. The use of anesthesia is a delicate science. If one is given the wrong drugs or the wrong quantity, serious injury such as brain damage or even death can occur.

The attorneys at Friedman & Moses have represented individuals that have had the misfortune of being injured by the negligent administration of anesthesia. Examples of such cases have involved the following:

  • Improper dosage
  • Side effects and/or allergic reactions to anesthesia
  • Improper intubation
  • Consciousness during surgery
  • Paralysis from improper placement on the operating table
  • Brain damage, coma or death

While nearly all anesthesiologists and anesthetists are highly trained, competent and capable professionals, injuries can still occur through unintentional medical negligence. The attorneys at Friedman & Moses are experienced in handling such matters and are available to meet with you if you or a family member has been harmed by anesthesia.
