New Jersey Anesthesia Error Attorney

Helping Injured Patients Recover Their Full Compensation Since 1939

Whether you were given local, regional, or general anesthesia, the damages caused by an error or accident can upend your life. Anesthesia is commonly used to prevent a patient from feeling pain during an operation, but if used incorrectly, it can cause the patient further pain and suffering. That is why it is so important to hold negligent health care providers accountable for such malpractice.

At Levinson Axelrod, P.A., we are committed to fighting for New Jersey residents injured due to anesthesia errors. Founded over 80 years ago, our firm has grown from the two-lawyer practice it started as to one of the largest firms in New Jersey. Our staff comprises more than 25 trial lawyers well-versed in obtaining injured plaintiffs the maximum compensation to which they are entitled. In the past five years, we have successfully recovered over $350 million for our clients. Since we accept cases on a contingency fee basis, working with our acclaimed firm is risk-free. If we don’t win your case, you won’t have to pay a penny!

What Leads to Anesthesia Accidents/Errors?

Anesthesia errors can occur at various stages of the process, and even seemingly minor mistakes can have serious consequences. These errors can occur due to a number of reasons, from failing to use machines correctly to selecting the wrong drug for a patient with allergies, and more. Even failing to monitor a patient throughout a procedure can have devastating consequences.

Some common causes of anesthesia accidents include:

Medication Errors:

  • Wrong Drug: This can happen due to similar-looking medication vials or confusing drug names. Double-checking medications and using standardized labeling systems can help prevent this.
  • Incorrect Dosage: Dosage errors can arise from miscalculations based on weight, age, or medical history. Using electronic dosing tools and careful verification can minimize this risk.
  • Allergic Reactions: Failing to consider a patient's allergies during medication selection can lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. Pre-anesthetic evaluation and clear communication about allergies are crucial.
