When anesthesia errors occur, consequences can be dire. Failure to read chart notes, lack of training, procedural errors, and poor communication may be factors in improper anesthesia care. Those who engage in such practices must be held accountable.
Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. is a nationally recognized medical malpractice firm, championing the cause of the wrongfully injured throughout Monterey, California. We provide experienced handling of anesthesia error claims, demanding answers and fair compensation for our clients.Demanding Accountability from the Medical Community
Our medical malpractice lawyers fight to obtain justice for clients, endeavoring to establish a culture of better anesthesia practices. The great responsibility of providing safe treatment compels us to hold medical professionals and hospitals liable when they fail to protect patients from harm.
Anesthesia mistakes can cause heart attack, brain damage, paralysis, and even death. It is essential to have the right representation in these matters. Guided by Brad Corsiglia, a respected, veteran medical malpractice attorney, our team continues to deliver justice in the most complex claims. We have a great number of successful outcomes and have recovered millions for our clients.
Our attorneys will investigate every aspect of the care you received care before, during and after surgery. Due to the amount of evidence to determine causality, these claims can be challenging and complex. Trust that we know what to look for and how to secure the information needed to make strong, comprehensive arguments on your behalf. When we investigate an anesthesia claim, we examine:
- The type, dosage, delivery method, timing, and procedure used;
- The credentials of the person or team responsible for administering the drug(s);
- Whether the patient was improperly monitored during the process;
- All patient-related documentation, including medical history and chart notes; and
- The outcome of any pre- or post-operative exam.
The intricate nature of applying general, regional, or local anesthesia requires a systematic approach to administration. Lack of an established process or failure of anesthesiologists to adhere to safe practices is unacceptable and may cause birth injuries, wrongful death, or long-term health issues. Be assured that every detail will be uncovered until we find the truth.
While we work diligently to handle your claim, we are careful not to rush the process. Often, time is necessary to weigh the full impact of a medical error. What began as an anesthesia claim may even be expanded to a larger medical malpractice suit. It is your right to receive the care or restitution you need for yourself or any loved one impacted by a medical error. It is our mission to fight for your rights. We will pursue every avenue available to bring all responsible parties to the table of accountability and work to secure the maximum amount of compensation possible.
