Compensation for an Anesthesia Error Lawsuit
After an anesthesia error, you could face significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges. If your personal injury lawsuit is successful, you could obtain a monetary award that allows you to address these challenges. While money cannot undo the harm you have suffered, it does have the potential to cover these damages and help you adjust to the changes in your life your injury brings.
You might face significant medical bills following an anesthesia error. If the mistake prevented you from receiving your originally scheduled treatment, you might now require multiple medical procedures. Your personal injury case could provide you with compensation for the cost of this medical care.
If you cannot work due to the injuries you suffered from an anesthesia error, you might miss out on your primary source of income. Weeks or months of missed paychecks could quickly turn your budget upside down. A successful personal injury case could allow you to recover your lost wages, salary, tips, retirement contributions, and more.
Pain and Suffering
Any physical pain and emotional anguish that results from an anesthesia error could also lead to a monetary award. However, there is no easy way to measure pain objectively because it can differ drastically from one person to another. To establish the value of your pain and suffering, our firm could review how it has affected your quality of life. These damages can vary, although they often scale with the cost of your medical care.
Diminished Future Earnings
Dealing with a medical injury following an anesthesia error can affect your financial situation in ways other than causing you to lose wages. If your injuries result in permanent disabilities, you might be unable to perform the same type of work you held prior to your injuries. This inability to work at your previous job could reduce your long-term earning potential. Your lawsuit could recover damages based on your future lost earnings.
Who Is Responsible for an Anesthesia Error?
It could take a thorough investigation to determine who is responsible for an anesthesia error. Ultimately, the doctor overseeing your care is responsible for ensuring they use anesthesia safely and appropriately. However, other parties could also bear responsibility for these errors.
In some cases, the nurses involved could make a mistake that leads to your injury. Hospital administrators could also share some of the fault, such as when the hospital makes a mistake regarding recordkeeping or supply issues.
