Injuries or Death Caused By Anesthesia Mistakes
Anesthesia errors are considered medical malpractice. It is estimated that 1 in every 200,000 to 300,000 patients die due to anesthesia complications. General anesthesia allows the patient to avoid pain during surgery by entering into an unconscious or semi-conscious state. Although modern anesthetic techniques are considered safe, anesthesia errors can be made and may lead to disastrous consequences for the patient.
Anesthesia errors are typically caused by anesthesiologist negligence. When anesthesia errors or anesthesia malpractice happens the responsible medical facility and providers can be held liable for the patient’s injuries or death.
If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death because of anesthesia malpractice in a Seattle-area hospital or other medical facility in Washington State, you may seek financial compensation for past and future medical expenses, loss of income, disability, emotional pain and suffering, and more.
