Indiana Anesthesia Errors Lawyers
Anesthesia is administered for most surgeries today. The procedure is performed in a hospital, an ambulatory surgery center or a doctor’s office. Anesthesiologists and other surgical or medical staff members have a duty to avoid mistakes by not rushing or cutting corners while patients are under the influence of anesthesia in preoperative, surgical, recovery and post-operative settings.
For every 1 million patients who undergo surgery, 7 people die as a result of anesthesia errors. If you have undergone surgery or a medical procedure that required you to be under anesthesia and you have residual side-effects, you may be eligible to receive a settlement to compensate for the financial losses you have sustained due to lack of income and incurred medical bills.
If you have sustained a permanent injury, incurred additional medical bills, or if you have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one due to an Anesthesia Error, the personal injury law offices of Wagner Reese can help you get the settlement you deserve and get you back on the road to recovery.
A Note about Medical Negligence
Medical negligence refers to the failure of a physician, medical professional, hospital or other medical service provider to meet the standards of conduct relating to their profession. The standards of conduct are based on what a medical professional with requisite training and skills would ordinarily be expected to do. For example: a doctor who prescribes the wrong medication may be negligent because the knowledge needed to give the correct prescription is considered to be an expected part of the profession or specialty.
A Note about Recovery Limits
Some states, including Indiana, have imposed laws that cap or limit the maximum amount of money an individual can recover in a medical malpractice suit. When you meet with us to discuss your medical malpractice claim, we will discuss current laws and limitations. Currently, the maximum amount recoverable from a qualified medical provider in Indiana is 1.25 million dollars.
