Contacting a Utah Anesthesia Injury Attorney
In order to better facilitate the complex surgeries of modern medicine which aid every one of us to live longer and fuller lives, a patient is treated with a general anesthetic which can be applied by an M.D. or a nurse anesthetist. This procedure that accompanies all surgeries whether minor or major allows the patient to be unconscious or in a semi-conscious state where they do mot feel the pain of the surgery itself. Sometimes negligence in implementing the anesthesia can result in harm to the patient and in such situations you should call a Utah anesthesia injury attorney at Salcido Law Firm.
Generally modern anesthesia is very safe and is recommended for this reason. However, anesthesiologists are human and do make mistakes and if an error is made in the application of anesthesia there can be tragic results for the patient. Current statistics show that about 1 in every 200,000 or 300,000 patients die due to complications with the anesthesia. In many of those cases a good Utah anesthesia injury attorney may be able to determine that the medical professional was negligent. Often these deaths and other anesthesia based injuries could be avoided if the person administering the treatment had not been negligent in some way. This routine procedure often becomes too routine and the professional administering it loses focus and negligently provides either an incorrect dosage or incorrect medication injuring the patient.
It is tragic when an error in the application of anesthesia complicates a complex medical procedure often resulting in serious injuries to the patient. An experienced Utah anesthesia injury attorney at Salcido Law Firm can help victims of improper anesthesia treatment to receive a reasonable recovery for the injuries they’ve sustained due to a medical professional’s negligence.
