Medical errors are reportedly the third leading cause of death in the United States and the cause of many significant injuries to innocent patients. Anesthesia error is a common type of medical malpractice that can have serious consequences, sometimes resulting in permanent injuries or death. Unfortunately, it is believed that many anesthesia errors go unreported because patients and family members do not realize that injuries sustained during medical procedures were actually caused by anesthesia errors. Another reason these cases go unreported is that people simply do not think that they have the ability to take on medical professionals, medical institutions, and their insurance companies and lawyers.
