How to Sue an Anaesthetist
An anaesthetist negligence claim is a specific type of medical negligence claim. If you are considering suing an anaesthetist you may be doing this on behalf of yourself, or behalf of another. Either of these claims is possible to commence and to complete successfully.
First of all, you must find out whether or not the claim you are wishing to make is viable. In any profession, mistakes do sometimes occur; this is an inevitability of life. However, some mistakes could have been avoided and are solely down to the negligence of one individual - in this case an anaesthetist. For a claim to be viable it must be considered that your anaesthetist acted in way that a reasonable body of medical professionals would not have and that their actions directly caused you or your loved one harm. Proving this is how your medical negligence lawyer will win compensation for you if your case is successful in court.
Common anaesthetist negligence claims:-
- Paralysis: permanent or semi-permanent
- Anaesthetic awareness
- Injury following intubation
These claims are often caused via the following errors:-
- Failure to administer correct dosages of anaesthesia
- Incorrect monitoring during surgery
- Badly administered medical care
Claims made against anaesthetists can be differing in severity - with the most severe claims being claim made for compensation for the death of a loved one following anaesthetic error. For this reason, 1st Claims completely understands that medical negligence claims of this type can be extremely difficult. Our team is specialised in dealing with cases of this sort so will be able to provide you with the support you need at this time.
