Anaesthetic Claims

Most of us have had an anaesthetic at some point. It’s a standard method of pain relief administered in medical and dental procedures. Although it’s generally safe, if the anaesthetic isn’t given correctly, it can have serious consequences.

Anaesthetic Claims

It‘s the responsibility of the anaesthetist to ensure that an anaesthetic is not only appropriate for you, but that the correct dose is administered in the correct way. Examples of negligence involving anaesthesia include being given an excessive or insufficient dosage, injury from the needle being angled incorrectly during administration and being injected into the wrong place.

Proving a medical negligence case involving an anaesthetist:

  • Breach of duty: The anaesthetist owes a duty of care to you when they prepare and administer anaesthesia. We have to prove, with expert evidence, that the standard of care you received fell below that of a reasonable and competent anaesthetist and was therefore negligent.
  • Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm.

If you have suffered harm as a result of negligence get in touch to see if we can help you make a no win, no fee claim for compensation.
