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

It is likely one of the following mistakes were made:

  • You got the wrong dosage of anesthesia—either too much or too little.
  • Intubation tubes were placed improperly, damaging your teeth or tissue in your throat.
  • You were not properly monitored 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!

What Kind of Complications Can Arise from Anesthesia?

Complications of anesthesia range from generally common and minor, to rare and yet more severe. They may include:

  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Postoperative pain
  • Temporary mental confusion
  • Tooth damage due to breathing tube placement
  • Sore throat
  • Larynx damage
  • Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction)
  • Breathing difficulty
  • Pneumonia infection
  • Brain damage due to lack of oxygen
  • Stroke
  • Nerve injury
  • Optic nerve injury
  • Blindness

Medical professionals are responsible for making sure patients receive the proper levels of the right anesthesia, and that they are monitored throughout surgical procedures.
