Anesthesia Related Injuries

The Anesthesiologist Is the Most Important Person In the Room

When you undergo surgery, you know you are putting your health in the hands of trained professionals, including the surgeon and nurses. But, you are literally putting your life in the hands of someone you talk to only briefly before going into the operating room: the anesthesiologist. Every year, thousands of people suffer serious injury or die because of miscalculations in the proper amount of anesthesia and mistakes made while monitoring the patient.

If you or a loved one suffered a medical problem because of an anesthesia-related injury that occurred during or after a surgical procedure, you are entitled to seek compensation for your injuries, medical treatment and losses. Watson & Carroll PC LLO are ready to help you protect your rights with nearly 30 years of trial experience. Our firm is recognized throughout the region for our attention to the important details that make a difference in a successful anesthesia injury case. We represent clients throughout eastern Nebraska.

Common anesthesia errors and negligence include:

  • Improper administration of anesthesia
  • Over-sedation leading to brain injury
  • Under-sedation
  • Improper monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate

We prepare every case for trial by following a simple road map that gets to the heart of whether your injuries could have been prevented:

  • What is the level of care expected of an anesthesiologist during surgery?
  • Could the anesthesiologist have avoided a mistake that led to the injury or wrongful death?

When a jury can put themselves in the injury victim's shoes, the evidence for awarding the victim the compensation is usually clear.
