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.

"Everyone I communicated with at this firm made me feel like I was part of their family. My needs, feelings, and concerns were carefully considered and given the needed attention. My counselors were available whenever I needed them and became my personal friends. They came highly recommended and lived up to their reputation. I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, that I was valued, and not just a possible source of income for the firm. They earned their fees, and you will find that they will also earn your trust." N.W.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
