Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Attorneys

Helping South Florida Patients and Their Families

Anesthesia makes it possible to perform complex, often lifesaving, surgeries that would otherwise be impossible because of the pain to and natural movements of patients. In addition, surgery would cause psychological trauma if patients could remember the experience. However, too much or too little of this important drug causes serious injuries.

Drawing on more than 75 years of combined experience, Brais Law Firm’s lawyers have the knowledge and skills to recover the maximum possible compensation in medical malpractice claims. Firm-wide, we have recovered nearly $40 million in the past four years alone. Law firm’s posting results that span 20 or 30 years might be great historical data, but recent results are what matter. Our lawyers have earned such honors as membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and designations as Super Lawyers, Rising Stars and Legal Elite. Our Results page gives details about some of our recent recoveries.

Our legal team is available to help you recover damages for complications arising from anesthesia.

How Anesthesia Works

Anesthesia performs three vital functions that allow surgeons to operate. First, anesthesia stops you from feeling pain that might otherwise be unendurable. Second, the drug paralyzes you to keep you from moving and to slow the autonomic nervous system during the procedure. Third, the drug gives you amnesia so you do not remember the frightening experience.


Anesthesia Overdose

An anesthesia overdose can result in serious symptoms, such as memory loss, cognitive impairment and physical disabilities. In the worst cases, an overdose can lead to permanent brain damage or death. Overdose may result from:

  • Miscalculating amount of drug for weight of the patient
  • Failing to screen patient for medical conditions
  • Using an inappropriate amount or type of anesthesia
  • Failing to monitor the patient’s vital signs during surgery

Surgical Memory and Pain

A patient who is given too little anesthesia may feel pain and retain her or his memory. Like a story from a nightmare, a patient may wake during surgery and yet remain paralyzed and so unable to alert the doctors of the pain and horror.


Damages Arising from Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesiologists have a duty to administer the appropriate amount and to monitor patients while sedated. An anesthesia mistake may result in such damages as:

  • Permanent brain damage
  • Disability
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Lost income and earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation and vocational training
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Psychological trauma
  • Diminished enjoyment of life

Our Miami anesthesia errors lawyers also represent families of patients who have died while under anesthesia.
