Connecticut Medication Error Attorneys

Our skilled team of attorneys works with medical, nursing, toxicological and pharmacological experts to develop our clients' claims and describe the full extent of the damages our clients have suffered due to anesthesia errors resulting in death, coma, heart attack, stroke, brain damage, blindness or other serious injuries to surgical patients.

These adverse results happen for reasons that include:

  • Failing to properly administer an anesthetic
  • Administering the wrong dosage
  • Using the wrong type of anesthetic
  • Failing to carefully monitor the patient during and immediately after the surgery in the PACU (post-anesthesia care unit)

In a civil action for negligence involving an anesthesiologist's error prior to C-section delivery that resulted in the coma and death of the mother, our attorneys recovered an award of $2.5 million for malpractice damages.
