Are Anesthesia Errors Considered Medical Malpractice in Virginia?

Comments (0)
When surgeries go wrong, patients and their families have to pick up the pieces. Not only are they forced to deal with the repercussions, they are also left wondering what exactly happened.

Surgical errors come in many forms, including anesthesia mistakes.  Anesthesiologists are highly trained to administer anesthesia, but sometimes errors occur.  A wrong dosage may be given or the patient may not have been monitored appropriately.  The result can be devastating.  Anesthesia complications include heart attack, stroke, nerve damage and systemic toxicity, to name a few.

How do you now if it’s medical malpractice?
As a patient, or family member of a patient, it is hard to know what exactly caused the anesthesia complication.  While human error is sometimes a factor, it is not true in every case.  That means medical malpractice may or may not have been to blame.

There are many misconceptions associated with medical malpractice and you need to be able to separate myth from reality.  You can learn more by reading my book, Why Most Medical Malpractice Victims Never Recover a Dime.

To prove a Virginia medical malpractice claim, you need the testimony of a medical expert. This expert will be used to determine if the anesthesiologist failed to provide the appropriate standard of care.

You can learn more about anesthesia errors in our articles:
