Anesthesia compensation claims

If you have undergone a surgical procedures and your anesthetic did not work, you may be entitled to make an anesthetic compensation claim with assistance from Blackwater  Law medical negligence solicitors.

Whilst the vast majority of operations do run smoothly, in a small amount of cases great suffering can result. Anesthetic awareness involves the patient suddenly becoming conscious and hugely aware of the painful surgery that they are undergoing, and the psychological consequences can be long-lasting. If you’ve suffered from crippling anesthetic awareness during an operation, Blackwater Law can help you to fight for the compensation that you deserve.

The Consequences of Negligence

Anesthetic awareness arises from clinical negligence and usually happens after you have not been given the correct amount of anesthetic. It can also happen because of faulty equipment, equipment not being checked or risks being taken. In any case, being conscious during an operation can be extremely traumatic and horrifying. There are many steps that surgeons can take to stop anesthetic awareness occurring, such as taking an in-depth look at your medical history, checking all equipment rigorously, knowing how to use it properly and of course delivering the right dose for your needs.
