Whether general, local, spinal or epidural, anesthesia requires great skill and poses serious inherent risks for the patient. Nevertheless, anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA) must comply with the standards of care. In those unfortunate instances where there are deviations from the standards of care, the negligent parties are liable for the patient.
Over the years, the medical malpractice lawyers of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, have investigated and pursued cases of anesthesia mishaps and injuries. If you or a family member has been harmed as a result of negative drug interactions, incorrect prescriptions or dosages, or another anesthesia drug complication, you may be entitled to compensation.

Prescription medications and anesthesia options are becoming more and more plentiful. Physicians and anesthesiologists have a responsibility to their patients to ensure that each of the specific medications is taken into account on an individual basis. Medical professionals need to understand the chemical effects of medications they prescribe as well as the possible negative interactions of medications with other prescribed and non-prescribed drugs their patients are taking.
When physicians or anesthesiologists do not prescribe the correct dosage, fail to protect against possible reactions, fail to question a patient as to other medications they may be taking, or fail to monitor the patient's condition, this negligence can quickly result in dangerous situations.
