When you go into surgery, you are putting your life in the hands of a licensed anesthesiologist. No matter how minor the surgery may be, general anesthesia or an anesthetic block of a major portion of your body has a serious effect on your body. A miscalculation or loss of concentration during the surgical procedure can cause permanent brain and organ damage or death.

Do You Have an Anesthesia Malpractice Case?
Many people assume that problems from anesthesia are part of the hazards of undergoing a surgical procedure. That may have been true 40 or 50 years ago. Today, you could suffer tragic results due to:
New anesthesia products
Systems for delivering the precise dosage
All are part of an expected level of care and treatment at hospitals and surgery centers throughout Oregon. Don’t assume that your injury wasn’t the result of negligence. Talk to an experienced Portland anesthesia error lawyer to discuss the circumstances of your case. We offer a free consultation and handle Oregon anesthesiologist negligence claims on contingency.
