Surgical, Anesthesia & Emergency Room Errors

Cleveland, Ohio, Attorney: Surgical, Anesthesia and Emergency Room Errors

One of the most serious errors occurring in emergency rooms is the failure of the staff to appreciate or diagnose a potentially life threatening injury. In these cases, patients are often discharged to go home and die or suffer a catastrophic injury. The Linton Law Firm Co. L.P.A. knows how to help families move forward after a serious surgical or anesthesia injury or emergency room misdiagnosis.

Most surgical and anesthesia injuries are preventable. If you or someone you love was injured, let us begin an immediate investigation into your case. Contact us to schedule a free consultation.

We will investigate your claim immediately. This includes obtaining all necessary medical records and hiring experts to assist us in establishing your claim. And we will do all this with sensitivity to your need for emotional healing after such a traumatic event.

Types of surgical, anesthesia, and emergency room injury cases:

  • Emergency room errors
  • Anesthesia injury and mistakes
  • Negligent incisions and surgical mistakes
  • Myocardial infarction/heart attack
  • Failure to address an increase or decrease in blood pressure
  • Misdiagnosis: brain aneurisms, pulmonary embolism, abdominal aortic aneurisms (AAA)
  • Brain injuries/coma/persistent vegetative state
  • Wrongful death
  • Failure to perform timely surgery

Improper monitoring of anesthesia

Anesthesia that is properly administered is a vital part of most surgical procedures. An overdose could lead to a slower heart rate and lack of oxygen to the brain while an under dose could result in a semi-conscious patient. Improper training, a negligent nurse anesthetist or improper monitoring could result in very serious injuries, including coma or even wrongful death. If you believe that you or a loved one was improperly monitored or suffered as the result of an anesthesia injury, we can begin an immediate investigation into your case and assert your rights.

Emergency room errors

Most serious emergency room errors result from a physician's failure to appreciate a serious and acute situation. If you or someone you love suffered a serious injury because a nurse or doctor failed to diagnose your condition or released an ailing loved one without proper care, we can assert your rights against the hospital and all negligent parties.
