Regional anesthesia — often called “nerve blocks” — involves anesthetic drugs near a nerve to temporarily block the nerve’s ability to transmit pain signals to the brain. When using regional anesthesia, large doses of local anesthetic can be administered. Even the most experienced doctors can make mistakes, and their medical negligence leads to serious injury.
If you wonder whether an anesthesia injury may have been medical malpractice, talking to the lawyers at the law firm of Cirignani Heller & Harman, LLP, can help. We serve clients in Chicagoland and throughout Illinois in all types of claims involving mistakes administering anesthesia. Our attorneys are also medical doctors who use extensive legal and medical knowledge to achieve results for our clients. While we cannot undo the damage caused, we are dedicated to recovering compensation so that you or a loved one can be properly cared for.
Our clients are people who have experienced problems after regional anesthesia was administered to allow a surgical operation, provide post-operative pain relief or during dental procedures. We represent people who have experienced many different types of injuries caused by anesthesia malpractice:
- Nerve damage
- Anesthetic toxicity
- Cardiac arrest
- Spinal shock and similar syndromes
These injuries often occur if the doctor negligently inserts a needle directly into the nerve or artery instead of the intended location. If you have been injured, the lawyers at Cirignani Heller & Harman, LLP, are dedicated to helping you through the horrendous aftereffects of anesthesia malpractice.
Our law firm combines the work of a team of attorneys with substantial credentials in the medical profession. Stanley J. Heller, M.D. is a board-certified cardiologist and Stu Perlik, M.D. is a board-certified neurologist. James Harman was a respiratory therapist. Each of these lawyers brings a wealth of knowledge to a wide range of medical malpractice cases.
