Helping Injured Victims Get Compensation For Anesthesiology Errors
Some anesthesiology errors are directly related to the amount of anesthesia used in a procedure. Other injuries may result from errors in pre-anesthesia positioning of the patient for the particular procedure. In either case, the medical malpractice attorneys at Sokol & Associates, P.C., have extensive experience handling all types of anesthesia negligence claims, including:
- Overmedicating or under medicating patients
- Failure to properly position a patient, leading to aspiration or bedsores
