Injuries due to anesthesia complications are often difficult to prove because the only friendly witness to the care is unconscious and undergoing the procedure.
In November of 2016, Bill Padget and Carl Hiller, obtained a $845,000 settlement for the family of a women who suffered paralysis for the last four months of her life which resulted from complications of anesthesia during a spine surgery. The family alleged that the anesthesia team failed to properly monitor her blood pressure which dropped to dangerously low levels causing an ischemic injury to her spine. The defense contended they provided proper care and that her paralysis was caused by an underlying cancerous condition. To help the family find answers the firm retained anesthesia and surgical experts who performed detailed analysis of the anesthesia records and uncovered the poor care and cause of the paralysis.
