Anesthesia Error - Malpractice

Anesthesia Error - MalpracticeMiami and Key West Medical Malpractice and Anesthesia Attorneys Anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists have a grave responsibility. When anesthesiologists are negligent and commit malpractice, the consequences are usually serious. They play an important role in making sure that a patient is medically stable and fit for non-emergency surgery and stable throughout emergency surgery. They must monitor and help regulate heart and respiratory function during any surgery under general anesthesia. In fact, anesthesiologists control a patient’s breathing when general anesthesia with an endotracheal tube is used. Placement of the tube itself can cause major injury or death, such as when the tube in placed in the esophagus instead of the trachea resulting in a fatal lack of oxygen to the lungs. The most serious cases of anesthesia malpractice by anesthesiologists utilizing general anesthesia lead to injuries that include aspiration pneumonia, hypoxic brain damage, coma or death.

Spinal and epidural anesthesia can also cause injury due to negligence. These injuries can be cardiovascular or neurologic, take other forms (e.g., patient may suffer bacterial meningitis, which must then be urgently diagnosed and treated), or even – in a rare case - result in death.

Robert Boyers was recommended to me to handle my slip and fall case. I will be forever grateful to Robert for allowing me to feel that I was in the ‘best possible hands’ throughout the 2+ year process through and including the settlement of the case. Robert’s expertise, professionalism, and compassion were beyond what I observed in the legal field. And, his associate and staff were a fine reflection of Robert’s guidance. Robert was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. Rhonda
I hired Mr. Robert Boyers for a wrongful death case involving my father. I wasn’t sure what to do, or procedures to take until I met Mr. Boyers. I can say honestly from my heart I’m very thankful I met this attorney. Losing a father, and feeling lost is the worst feeling anyone would have. Mr. Boyers and his staff was very sincere and compassionate the entire time and then after during my case. Erica
I had a major accident where I sustained many injuries both short and long term. I was referred to Rob Boyers by a friend and I contacted him and he came to my house as I was completely incapacitated. He interviewed myself and my family as to the facts of the case and we subsequently hired him to handle my case as it relates to the insurance and the various medical obligations i was incurring.
To that end I am grateful to him and his services and consider him a friend to this day.
