Supporting Victims of Anesthesia Errors
When most people think of an anesthesiologist, they think of someone who administers the medication that numbs you or makes you unconscious during a surgery. In actuality, the anesthesiologist administers multiple medications that ensure proper bodily functioning during surgery, as well as monitors vital signs.
As such, these professionals have a very serious responsibility. When they are negligent or inattentive, their mistakes can have extremely serious consequences. If you or a loved one has been injured in surgery due to what may have been an anesthesia error, it is extremely important to seek proper counsel.

An example of our lawyers’ success.
- $590,000 – A 17-year-old boy from Houston, Texas, had back surgery for scoliosis. He also suffered from muscular dystrophy. The surgeon noted air bubbles at the surgical site in his back. The surgeon demanded to know from the anesthesiologist as to what was going on. The anesthesiologist to his surprise saw air going in the IV line in his arm. The surgery was quickly finished, and it appeared that the air had not caused a major problem, but six hours later the patient suffered a clot stroke. The plaintiff’s expert doctor determined that the air from the vein had crossed over into the arterial system – as evidenced by the fact that there was air in the surgical field in the low back. The air in all likelihood contributed to the development of a clot on the valve that broke loose later that night. The stroke resulted in significant loss of vision for the patient. This case was venued in Houston, Texas.
