An experienced anesthesia malpractice lawyer like me knows how devastating this form of medical malpractice can be. Medical bills, lost wages, permanent disabilities, mental impairment, and the necessity for long-term care are some of the unexpected side effects of an injury that can forever change your life. Because of my nursing experience and 17 years of experience litigating these types of cases, I’m especially passionate about pursing justice for people who’ve been hurt by the carelessness of their medical providers.
What is anesthesia malpractice?
Anesthesia malpractice is when an anesthesiologist causes an injury to a patient through an action or a failure to act.They failed to uphold the proper standard of care for the patient, which is what a different, reasonably prudent anesthesiologist would do under similar circumstances. Common anesthesia malpractice injuries include brain damage, lung collapse, and stroke.
How can an anesthesia malpractice attorney help you?
To prove your anesthesia malpractice claim, my legal team at Dellacona Law Firm and I will investigate and gather all evidence which might be relevant or helpful to your malpractice claim. We will use everything from medical records and bills to chart notes, emails, text messages, and eyewitness interviews and depositions to build your case. As your attorney, I will also secure the testimony of a medical expert who can explain appropriate medical standard of care to the jury, how the healthcare provider breached that standard, and how that breach resulted in your injury.
If you’re in this situation, keep detailed notes about every phone call, doctor’s visit, and medical test that relates to your injury. It’s also helpful to keep all your medical records, bills, notes, and documentation of any other expenses you incur as a direct result of the injury together in a safe place.
