We Fight for Those Injured by Anesthesiologist Malpractice
Anesthesiologists and certified nurse anesthetists bear tremendous responsibility when they assess a patient and administer powerful drugs. As you may have discovered painfully or tragically, an anesthesia error can have a devastating, irreversible outcome. At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, we have won millions in compensation for medical malpractice and other personal injury victims, building extensive knowledge of surgical procedures and applicable standards of care.
Please call 630-848-9294 or contact us online for honest, informed legal counsel. Our veteran attorneys, based in Naperville and Chicago and focused on the western suburbs, have qualifications essential to representing you after an anesthesia error has changed your life.
Knowledge of Medical Procedures and Anesthesiologist Responsibilities
Reviewing all available information on patient history, selecting the optimum anesthesia, and calculating dosage accurately are all essential pre-surgical steps. Serious anesthesia errors have occurred due to failures such as:
- Not reviewing patient risks and history, including when he or she last ingested food or whether other drugs are present in the patient’s system
- An anesthesia overdose — or insufficient dosage to remain effective throughout a surgical procedure
- Inadequate monitoring of the patient under anesthesia
No-Risk Representation for the Seriously Injured and Grieving
These and other anesthesia mistakes can have a variety of severe effects, ranging from permanent brain damage and cognitive problems to paralysis and even a preventable and wrongful death. We will investigate and assess whether legal action is justified against the anesthesiologist, supervising doctor, hospital or other facility, or other parties at fault in your case.
