Compensation claims for failure to use appropriate anaesthetic

Whenever you are undergoing a surgical procedure of any type, one of the most important elements of that is involved is the application of anaesthetic. This is commonly used before an operation to put the patient to sleep and keep them numb for the duration of the surgery and then wake them once it is completed. Unfortunately though, mistakes can happen through the negligent actions of a medical professional and when it involves anaesthetics it can leave you with injuries as a result. Furthermore, if you were to awake during an operation, the trauma and psychological scarring can have a serious effect on the way you live forever. If you believe this applies to you, then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim as a result.

Who can I claim against for failed anaesthetic care?

If you believe that you have suffered through medical negligence and you are looking to make a claim for compensation, thenthere are a few different individuals who you may wish to consider claiming against. You could make a claim against any medical professional who you believe has put your health at risk, which could include your doctor, nurse, dentist or any other healthcare specialist who has not performed at the best of their abilities. If you believe that your requirements have not been met and as a result you are suffering, then you could make a claim against them for medical negligence.

What are some potential problems that could occur?

A number of problems can potentially occur while in the care of a private nurse, some common examples of where you could sustain injuries include:
