You Put Your Life In An Anesthesiologist’s Hands

When you go into the operating room, you are putting your life into the hands of an anesthesiologist or CRNA. Every decision about oxygen, blood pressure and time are critical to your survival. A simple mistake like failing to monitor oxygen and blood pressure can result in death or catastrophic brain and organ damage.

Winckler, Harvey & McConnell, LLP is a prominent medical malpractice law firm representing victims of anesthesia and surgical errors throughout Texas. Our attorneys have extensive experience working with independent professionals and health specialists to investigate and prepare clear evidence to seek the full and fair compensation you deserve for your medical and financial damages.

“Anesthesiology errors can lead to some of the most catastrophic life-long medical problems. You will find our lawyers and professional staff caring and compassionate and responsive to your family’s needs
throughout your case.”
– Attorney Jay Harvey

Contact us to discuss your claim. We offer free initial consultations. We will investigate your case and give you an honest assessment of whether you are likely to recovery damages for your injuries or wrongful death claim. We handle all medical malpractice cases on contingency. If we can’t help you recover money for your injuries, you won’t pay our attorney fees.

We represent people in surgical injury claims resulting from anesthesia negligence, such as:

  • Providing anesthesia without full evaluation
  • Failure to properly monitor vital signs
  • Equipment failure
  • Ventilator errors
  • Improper changes in gas flow
  • Medication and drug errors
  • Aspiration
  • Epidural catheter complications

Who Is Responsible?

Typically, anesthesiologists and CRNAs are independent, licensed professionals who contract with the hospital for their services. They usually carry their own malpractice insurance. Often, a negligence claim will be filed directly against the anesthesiologist but may also include negligence on the part of the hospital and surgical staff. We investigate fully and file a suit against each party who is liable for your injuries or wrongful death claim.

Attorneys Jay Winckler and Jay Harvey are Personal Injury Trial Specialists, certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and have received the highest AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review process.
