Anaesthesia is used in a wide variety of dental and hospital procedures. It involves the use of drugs to induce a temporary state of pain relief, paralysis and unconsciousness to enable medical procedures to be undertaken.
Whilst mistakes are rare, the consequences when things do go wrong can be catastrophic leading to trauma, psychological or psychiatric injury, brain damage and even death.
We have experience in dealing with a wide range of cases involving problems with anaesthesia during hospital procedures.
Some examples of cases involving Anaesthesia issues are as follows:
- Damage caused to a patient’s spine as a result of mismanaged epidural.
- Failed spinal anaesthetic with awareness of pain during a Caesarean section.
- Inadequately assessing a patient’s fitness for general anaesthetic prior to surgery resulting in respiratory failure.
- Incorrectly administering a muscle relaxant instead of a sleep inducing drug.
If you think that you may have suffered an injury as a result of failures in anaesthetics you were given then you may be entitled to compensation.
We at Freemans have a wealth of experience in dealing with all types of Clinical Negligence claims.

Using our knowledge and expertise we will ensure that your claim is investigated fully in a sensitive manner.
