What Types of Damages Can Be Recovered in Anesthesia Cases?

- Lost wages

- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering

Holding Multiple Parties Liable
Anesthesiologists may not be the only parties responsible for injuries and damages to a patient. Several defendants could be named in an anesthesia error lawsuit including:
- The hospital or surgical center
- The surgeon
- Other medical staff members
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Medical equipment manufacturers
If a case goes to trial, a jury determines the degree of liability each named defendant carries. In some cases, not every defendant will be found liable.
Can a Lawyer Help Settle Anesthesia Error Cases?
Settlements are an alternate resolution to ending a legal claim. Instead of taking the case before a jury, both sides could settle the case. The attorney for the defendant and the plaintiff’s attorney could negotiate the terms including the amount of compensation the plaintiff should receive in order to end the lawsuit. Settlements can be completed through communication via phone and email or in a mediation session.
If the plaintiff agrees to a settlement, they also agree to not bring a civil action for the situation again. The ultimate decision to settle the lawsuit is with the plaintiff. Our Brooklyn anesthesia error lawyers are experienced in guiding patients throughout the entire legal process, including during settlement negotiations.
