Los Angeles Anesthesia Error Attorney

Experienced Representation for Medical Malpractice Claims

Patients who are about to undergo a surgical procedure are often fearful of the complications that can arise during surgery. Few patients, however, think about the possibility of anesthesia errors occurring during their procedure. The tragic truth of the matter is that anesthesia errors occur far more often than we would like to think about. Medical professionals may commit malpractice by administering too much or too little anesthesia during a medical procedure, whether it be topical, regional, or general anesthesia. Anesthesia complications can occur in a variety of settings, including the emergency room, hospital, clinic, dentists’ office, and more.
