Miami Anesthesiologist Error Lawyer
Anesthesia is most commonly administered to patients undergoing surgery or some other painful medical procedure. Calculating the amount of general anesthesia to use is complicated. A mistake in dosage or in the type of anesthesia can cause permanent disability, loss of function or even death.
The law firm of Kenneth J. Bush, P.A., in Coral Gables, Florida, represents individuals who have suffered any of a variety of injuries resulting from errors in administering anesthesia or errors in monitoring patients who have been anesthetized, as well as other pain management treatments.
Anesthesia errors occur in more than operation rooms. Anesthesia errors are typically thought of as occurring in operating rooms, but they can occur in a variety of settings and are not limited to anesthesiologists. Anesthesia errors occur in pre-operative and recovery rooms, during labor and delivery, during sedation for dental procedures, and during a wide variety of out-patient medical procedures in surgical clinics and doctors’ offices.
People suffering from the consequences of anesthesia mistakes often require lifetime care and support. Many patients never fully recover. Most victims lose income as a result of missing work temporarily or not being able to return to their job at all. For all of these reasons and more, you deserve compensation.
Common injuries resulting from anesthesia errors include:
- Cardiac arrest
- Brain injury
- Allergic reactions

A medical area of increasing importance that is similar to anesthesiology is the practice of pain management. The demand for pain management using prescription medicine has increased exponentially for patients under hospital care.
Poor training of hospital staff, understaffing, lack of communication and other common hospital errors lead to mistakes in administering pain medications that can cause serious injuries and wrongful deaths.
A surge in steroid injections to alleviate back and neck pain in the U.S. is bringing with it an increase in severe and unexpected complications, including paralysis and death. Most recently, epidural steroid injections have been linked to a fungal meningitis outbreak. Personal injury attorneys throughout the U.S. are researching the link between the contaminated injections and fungal meningitis.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious illness, injuries or a wrongful death as a result of pain management treatment, you should seek legal counsel.
