The anesthesiologist who intubated me for my appendectomy severely injured larynx throat. The hypopharynx suffered a 6mm cut. Do I have a case for medical malpractice?
A: Your injury was quite likely the result of medical or surgical malpractice. Whether or not you have a valid legal claim requires further analysis requiring more information. We only give legal opinions after a thorough review of the anesthesiologist who intubated me for my appendectomy severely injured larynx throat case. In addition, a finding of medical malpractice can only be given by a medical expert.
However, based on the severity of the initial description, the doctor who performed the intubation quite likely acted negligently. During a surgery involving general anesthesia, doctors must provide air to patients through what is called intubation. Intubation involves inserting a tube down the patient’s throat to provide air to the lungs.
