Anesthesia Complications in NM

New Mexico Lawyers Representing Patients

In the United States, 1 person in a thousand will suffer complications from anesthetic applied in surgery—whether it is local or general anesthesia. When it comes to anesthetic, even the simplest procedures can end in tragedy. Anesthesia complications can cause a patient’s death for something as routine as getting a tooth removed. That’s why doctors and nurses are trained to predict and prepare for any complications arising from anesthetic use.

If you or a loved one have been harmed because a doctor or nurse did not exercise suitable caution when administering anesthesia, contact Hampton & King. We have over 50 years of combined experience handling a variety of anesthesia complication cases, and our network of contacts allow us to build the strongest possible malpractice case in your favor. Our clients never pay out-of-pocket expenses when we represent them—in fact, they only pay if we win.

We offer confidential, free case consultations—call (505) 395-5575 to discuss your claim with us.

Types of Anesthesia Complications

Complications can arise during surgery due to the technical errors of the anesthesiologist, or can result from a doctor not monitoring the body’s response to the anesthetic. As a result, anesthesia complications cover a broad range of events during surgery.
