As a patient, you may experience a plethora of problems while receiving medical care, some of which may constitute medical malpractice. Many people are aware of surgical errors and birth injuries, but it is crucial to recognize all forms of medical malpractice, including anesthesiology errors. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our law firm knows very well how serious these errors can be for patients in San Bernardino, and all cities across California.
According to research that was published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, there are many reasons why anesthesiology errors occur. For example, an incompetent anesthesiologist who lacks proper training may make a mistake or a highly skilled anesthesiologist may fail to keep a close watch on one of their patients. Although anesthesiologists are often under a lot of pressure, they have a responsibility to provide you with the level of care that you deserve and should be held accountable for any wrongdoing that causes you harm.
Regrettably, some patients who suffer after an anesthesiologist’s error are afraid to come forward or do not realize their rights, missing out on benefits that could have assisted their recovery. From negligent anesthesiologists responsible for a patient’s death or injury to errors made by other physicians, all forms of medical professional negligence need to be addressed by patients or their families right away.
