Compensation for an inadequate dosage of anaesthetic

Depending on what type of surgery you require, chances are that at some point you will need to undergo anaesthetic. Although in many situations this is designed to take away the pain that you will feel, unfortunately sometimes that isn’t the case and an inadequate dosage of anaesthetic can lead to a number of traumatic experiences for anyone who happens to be a victim of it.

Although in most cases anaesthetic will put you to sleep before your operation and wake you up after it, in a number of situations this doesn’t happen and if you do find yourself the victim in this situation then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to recoup any financial damages that you have sustained as a result of your accident.

Who might be responsible for any injuries I sustain?

In general if you are in surgery then you will be appointed an anaesthetist who will be responsible for ensuring that you are administered an adequate amount of anaesthetic throughout your treatment. If you feel that they have not adequately calculated the amount of anaesthetic that you require, or perhaps they haven’t given you the appropriate anaesthetic, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim against them to recoup any financial damages that you have sustained as a result. 

In which situations could I suffer from negligence?

There are a number of different situations where you could find yourself the victim of negligence in this case and these include:

  • Being administered with the wrong substance
  • Being administered with too much anaesthetic
  • Being administered with too little anaesthetic
  • Being administered with an anaesthetic that you are allergic to.
