Our firm helps victims of anesthesia-related malpractice

California patients who need to undergo surgery may also require anesthesia. The medications used by anesthesiologists can render a patient unconscious, as well as make it so that a patient is unable to feel pain while under the effects of the medication. This may be helpful during surgery, but, unfortunately, there are also serious risks associated with the use of anesthesia, particularly when anesthesia drugs are administered by a negligent physician. Such serious mistakes can cause serious harm and death, and could lead to major medical malpractice awards, as this blog reported in a previous post.

An anesthesiologist may make a dosage mistake in the quantity of a medication administered or, by virtue of not checking for allergies, may administer an incorrect drug to a patient. Such serious medication errors can lead to major, and potentially even fatal, consequences for a California patient. Steven I. Kastner recognizes the severity of such mistakes and seeks to obtain compensation for patients who have been injured due to the negligence of an anesthesiologist or other physician.

Anesthesia-related injuries may include cardiac arrest, brain and spinal cord damage, and stroke, in addition to death. Our law offices aggressively advocate for those persons who have suffered such injuries and we fight to recover the compensation they are rightly owed. Additionally, our legal team represents families that have lost a loved ones following an anesthesiologist's negligence. The time following an anesthesia-related injury is undoubtedly challenging, but legal representation can help smooth the process and assist an injured patient or his or her family on the path to recovery.
