If you have suffered an injury or other physical harm due to an anesthesia error during surgery, talk to a trusted medical malpractice lawyer about your legal options. Contact an anesthesia error lawyer from Leopold & Associates in Chicago to discuss your case with attorney Valerie Leopold.

Representing Victims of Anesthesia Errors

The Chicago law firm of Leopold & Associates represents individuals who have suffered any anesthesia error:

  • Dosage errors
  • Delay in anesthesia delivery
  • Errors in administering spinal anesthesia
  • Errors in tube insertion
  • Failure to monitor patient for signs of distress
  • Prolonged sedation

An anesthesia error can result in serious injuries, including brain damage, heart attack or stroke, oxygen deprivation/asphyxia, tracheal damage, and coma. I represent individuals who have suffered these or other injuries due to an anesthesiologist's negligence, as well as family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal medical malpractice incident.

Anesthesiology is a very specialized area of medicine, so it is important to work with an attorney who understands how to address the complexities of these cases. Over the course of my career, I have obtained millions of dollars in recoveries for individuals who have been injured due to medical and hospital negligence. I can help you understand what options are available based on the specifics of your medical malpractice claim.
