Anesthesia Errors

Louisville Anesthesia Error Lawyers

Exposing Surgical Malpractice in Kentucky

Anesthesia makes it possible for medical procedures to be performed without the patient feeling any pain. Unfortunately, anesthesia does not come without risk. There are inherent risks associated with general anesthesia, and at times even the most experienced or competent anesthesiologist cannot prevent an adverse effect, such as an allergic reaction. In other scenarios, however, an anesthesia injury can be traced to a specific error or act of negligence.

For over 30 years, our Louisville anesthesia error attorneys have fought to expose medical malpractice in Kentucky. We have done so to seek justice for those who have already been injured, and to improve conditions for future patients. If you believe that you or someone you love suffered harm due to an error, mistake, or act of negligence on the part of an anesthesiologist, surgeon, nurse, or any healthcare professional, do not wait to talk to one of our legal professionals about your options. Your consultation is free, and you pay no upfront costs and no legal fees at all unless we win.
