Anesthesia Errors

Most people consider the use of anesthesia to be a routine part of many medical procedures. Yet, despite the common use of general, regional, and local anesthesia, anesthesia errors can and do routinely occur and result in devastating consequences including paralysis, loss of heart function, seizures, and death. When anesthesia errors are due to medical negligence, victims should be compensated for their losses.
