Anesthesia Malpractice Attorneys Serving the Portland-Vancouver and SW Washington Area

At Jane Clark Legal, our experienced anesthesia malpractice attorneys have over 35 years of expertise in handling cases related to patients who have suffered injuries due to anesthesia medical malpractice. Anesthesia malpractice occurs when negligence arises during the administration of anesthesia, leading to patient harm. Our medical malpractice attorneys specialize in representing clients in such cases, ensuring their rights are protected and seeking the compensation they deserve.

Examples of Anesthesia Medical Malpractice

Here are specific examples of anesthesia medical malpractice issues that our attorneys have successfully resolved:

  • Medication errors: Anesthesia involves administering various medications, including anesthetic agents, analgesics, and muscle relaxants. Our attorneys handle cases involving medication dosage errors, incorrect drug administration, and the failure to consider a patient’s medical history or potential drug interactions. Such errors can result in adverse reactions, anesthesia awareness, or other complications.
  • Improper intubation or airway management: Proper airway management is crucial during surgery. Our attorneys have the expertise to address cases where inadequate intubation or improper placement of breathing tubes lead to oxygen deprivation, aspiration, or other respiratory complications.
  • Failure to monitor vital signs: Continuous monitoring of vital signs, such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and carbon dioxide levels, is essential during anesthesia. Our attorneys handle cases where the failure to monitor these indicators properly results in undetected complications or delayed intervention.
  • Allergic reactions: Our attorneys focus on cases where anesthesia professionals fail to consider a patient’s known allergies or sensitivities to medications or substances, leading to severe allergic reactions.
  • Delayed anesthesia emergence or prolonged sedation: Anesthesia medical malpractice can occur if a patient experiences delayed emergence from anesthesia or prolonged sedation beyond safe limits. Our attorneys handle cases involving complications such as respiratory depression or brain damage resulting from these situations.
  • Inadequate preoperative assessment: Proper preoperative assessments are essential to evaluate a patient’s medical history, current health status, and potential risk factors. Our attorneys represent clients in cases where inadequate assessments contribute to complications during anesthesia administration.
  • Inadequate communication: Effective communication among the anesthesia team is crucial to patient safety. Our attorneys handle cases where crucial information, such as patient allergies, pre-existing conditions, or changes in vital signs, was not communicated, leading to errors or complications.
