When can a victim sue for medical malpractice because of anesthesia errors?

Failure on the part of a medical professional to clearly explain what the risks are of going under anesthesia can be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Other common reasons for lawsuits include:

  • Failure of the medical professional to follow the medical standard of care by using the best practices for the patient’s condition and situation.
  • Failure of the medical professional to respond quickly and appropriately to the medical crisis.
  • Failure on the part of the medical professional to identify a medical condition that could put the patient at a dangerous risk.
  • Incorrect dosage of anesthesia
  • Misdiagnosis
  • The type of anesthesia method used
