Anesthesia Malpractice

Being put under anesthesia is a major medical procedure that can have catastrophic consequences to a patient's health when incorrectly performed. A patient is literally helpless under anesthesia and must trust the physician and hospital staff to appropriately administer drugs and monitor his or her status. Thankfully, the majority of surgeries in America are performed under anesthesia without ill-effect. When an anesthesiologist commits mistakes, however, they can cause serious injury and even death.

The attorneys at Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf have more than 100 years of experience representing patients who have been injured or have died as the result of anesthesia malpractice. Our team of attorneys includes a board-certified physician and a professional registered nurse who can assist in reviewing your case and help you to understand the full medical scope of your claim. Our firm conducts exhaustive investigations; we retain the most qualified experts to bring a comprehensive level of expertise to surpass that on the other side.

If necessary, we also retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many anesthesia malpractice cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. In order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life, we use financial professionals to derive fair resolutions for injury victims.


The firm's medical malpractice attorneys have achieved verdicts and settlements that are among the largest in New York and New Jersey. Some of the more notable results include $8,000,000 settlement in a medical malpractice case in which a woman was rendered brain damaged as a result of anesthesiologic malpractice; $3,500,000 settlement on behalf of a man injured as a result of improper administration of an anesthetic and $2,000,000 settlement on behalf of a young man whose wife died due to negligent anesthesia care during a routine D & C.

If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of anesthesia malpractice, please contact our firm to discuss your case.
