If you or someone you love suffered a complication during local, regional or general anesthesia administration, the hospital or medical professionals who treated you may be at fault.

One of the following mistakes were likely made during your procedure:

  • You got the wrong dosage of anesthesia—either too much or too little.
  • Improper placement of Intubation tubes, which damaged your teeth or throat tissue.
  • You did not receive proper monitoring throughout the procedure.
  • Complications were not properly recognized as they developed.
  • Health professionals failed to properly monitor your oxygen levels.
  • You were not given proper instructions to prepare for the surgery.

The lawyers at Fieger Law know the questions to ask to get you the answers you deserve. We will fight for you!
