NJ Medical Malpractice Lawyers Represent Victims Injured By Anesthesia Complications


We Represent Clients on a Contingency Fee Basis · No-Cost Case Evaluation

Any medical procedure involves a degree of risk, and going under anesthesia is no exception. While complications are rare, side effects include temporary mental confusion, awaking while under anesthesia, lung infections, heart attack, stroke and death. These risks are greater in older patients and people who have medical problems such as sleep apnea.

If you have suffered a serious injury or a loved one has died due to complications of anesthesia, it may be due medical malpractice. New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP offer a free consultation to evaluate your case. With offices in Edison, Red Bank and Toms River, our lawyers represent families throughout New Jersey.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Not every bad medical outcome is due to malpractice. Sometimes injuries or even death occur under anesthesia even when doctors do everything they are supposed to do. As long as the anesthesiologist and other medical professionals met the standard of care, you do not have a case of medical malpractice.

Malpractice occurs when medical providers fail to meet the standard of care and you are injured as a result. Examples of anesthesia malpractice include:

  • Failure to maintain an open airway, resulting in asphyxia
  • Leaving a patient alone while under anesthesia
  • Falling off the operating table under anesthesia
  • Failure to monitor a patient who is under anesthesia
  • Failure to monitor a patient after he or she comes out from under anesthesia

If you were injured due to anesthesia errors, our lawyers will work with leading independent medical specialists to investigate and prepare the strongest case possible for full recovery of compensation. Our New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers are recognized among the leading medical malpractice attorneys in New Jersey, with a case record of successful settlements and verdicts exceeding $550 million on behalf of plaintiffs.
