Claims for the incorrect administration of anaesthetic

If you are undergoing any type of surgery then chances are that anaesthetic will be needed to ensure that you feel numb and doing feel pain while you are undergoing the procedure. In many cases the administration of anaesthetic is relatively simple and is done by a qualified professional, but sometimes unfortunately even these professionals can make mistakes and as a result you could find yourself the victim of an anaesthetic error.

If you do find yourself the victim in this situation then you may look to make a claim to cover any compensation that you are owed as a result of this incident.

IN WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES COULD A COMPENSATION CLAIM BE MADE?

Compensation claims for the incorrect administration of anaesthetic can be made in a number of different situations, some common examples of these include:

  • Claims for administering too much anaesthetic
  • Claims for administering too little anaesthetic
  • Claims for failing to administer anaesthetic
  • Claims for using unhygienic tools to administer anaesthetic
  • Claims for administering anaesthetic to an incorrect body part

WHO COULD I CONSIDER CLAIMING AGAINST?

If you are looking to make a claim then you will most likely consider making this claim against the anaesthetist who is responsible for ensuring that you are dealt with appropriately in this manner. Although they may not directly be your healthcare professional, they have a responsibility to uphold their role to the best of their abilities, and if you feel that they have failed to do this, leaving you with injuries, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
