Anesthesia Error Lawyers in North Carolina

Assisting Victims of Medical Negligence & Their Loved Ones

While anesthesia is an amazing tool that allows medical professionals to perform myriad procedures without any pain for the patient, it is not without risks. That said, anesthesiologists are highly trained professionals who, when they act according to the standard duty of care, should take all necessary precautions to protect patients from risks and ensure the safe and effective administration of anesthesia.

Unfortunately, anesthesia errors happen with relative frequency. In fact, this is one of the most common examples of medical malpractice in the United States. If you or your loved one was the victim of an anesthesia error, turn to the legal team at Lanier Law Group for compassionate guidance and dedicated advocacy.

Our North Carolina anesthesia error lawyers are well-versed in all aspects of medical malpractice; we can thoroughly investigate your case and determine how you should proceed.

If you or a loved one were permanently injured or disabled, contact us today at (855) 757-4204 to discuss your situation. Your initial consultation is completely free. 

What Are the Most Common Anesthesia Errors?

As previously mentioned, anesthesia does come with some risks. A patient may experience certain side effects or he or she may not know that he or she is prone to anesthesia complications. This is extremely rare, however, and is unpredictable.

Anesthesia mistakes differ from general risks in that they occur when an anesthesiologist or another medical professional fails to uphold the standard duty of care. In other words, if an anesthesiologist does not provide the same level of care that you could reasonably expect another trained medical professional to provide, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.

Some common examples of anesthesia errors include:

  • Administration of too much or too little anesthesia
  • Delayed anesthesia administration
  • Administration of the wrong type of anesthesia
  • Failure to identify adverse anesthesia reactions
  • Failure to identify anesthesia-drug interactions and potential adverse effects
  • Failure to monitor a patient under anesthesia
  • Defective medical equipment used during anesthesia administration
  • Failure to advise patient of possible side effects, risks, complications, etc.

Additional Consequences of An Anesthesia Error

Sadly, the consequences of an anesthesia error can be severe and even life-threatening.

A victim may suffer:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Brain damage
  • heart attack
  • Severe pain
  • And more

At Lanier Law Group, we are committed to fighting for individuals who have suffered immensely as a result of an anesthesia mistake.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
