Anaesthetic errors and mistakes by anaesthetists can be devastating causing pain and disability.

Anaesthetic Awareness Claims
Finding yourself still awake during a surgical operation is both traumatic & frightening. Although it's quite rare, patients can not only suffer pain but also feel completely helpless. It can lead to serious psychological damage, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Anaesthetic Nerve & Spinal Cord Injuries
Patients can suffer injuries when anaesthetics are mistakenly injected into the spinal cord or into nerves are that are damaged by injections. These injuries can result in severe pain and serious disability.
Anaesthetic Brain Damage & Stroke
Patients can suffer very serious injuries if anaesthetists make mistakes during operations. In the worst cases, people have suffered brain damage or strokes because their blood pressure was not regulated properly.
Compensation for Best Quality of Life in the Future
Where people are left with severe disabilities caused by anaesthetists, securing compensation for damages is extremely important to make sure they have the best quality of life in the future. Compensation can provide:
• The best medical care, including private medical treatments
• Being in greater comfort than in NHS hospitals
• Help with nursing at home
• Help with household tasks
• An award for the loss of income.
Our Medical Negligence Solicitors completely understand the trauma involved with anaesthetics errors, and help their clients through the process of making a compensation claim; and beyond.
