Cleveland Lawyers Representing Victims of Anesthesia Mistakes

Today, when a patient undergoes surgery, he or she most likely receives anesthesia. Usually, it is administered to put the patient in an unconscious or semi-conscious state during surgery through the use or certain drugs, medications, and/or gasses. The medical professionals who are responsible for administering the anesthesia, keeping the patient sedated during surgery, and monitoring the patient’s vital signs are called anesthesiologists. When they make a mistake, it is likely a case of anesthesia malpractice.

Common Anesthesia Malpractice Injuries

Generally, anesthesia is considered to be a safe and effective way to block pain during surgery. However, anesthesia errors can occur and oftentimes result in serious medical complications and sometimes death. Some of the common injuries that can occur as a result of anesthesia malpractice include:

  • Birth Defects
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Asphyxia
  • Brain Damage
  • Coma
  • Heart Attack
  • Memory Loss
  • Spinal Injury
  • Loss of Body Function
  • Death

Some common reasons that patients have complications from anesthesia include:

  • The Anesthesiologist Doesn’t Review the Patient’s Medical History
  • Intubation Errors
  • Anesthesia Dosage Errors
  • Failure to Monitor Vital Signs
  • Allergic Reactions to Anesthetic
  • Prolonged Sedation

  • I was in a car accident. The insurance company only offered $2,500 to settle my car case. Attorney Allen Tittle took the matter to trial, and after four days, obtained a jury verdict of $75,000 which is 30 times more than what I was offered. He fights for his clients and obtains justice. I would highly recommend him.
  • Allen was professional, conscientious and well organized. Allen's research of my case produced results in which he was able to obtain a copy of a video from the grocery store and subpoenaed a witness that substantiated my claim and proved that I was in fact struck by the vehicle and injured, which he presented in the deposition. This resulted in a successful settlement in my favor
  • What I liked best about Tittle & Perlmuter was the prompt return of phone calls, always knowing when paperwork had been sent, and knowing I could call anytime and get my questions answered.
