Intubation Error Attorneys in Virginia

Fighting against Medical Malpractice Since 1979

At Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, we are dedicated to helping injured victims. Our Virginia intubation error attorneys have decades of experience and know how to achieve powerful results. We believe that intubation errors are all too common and that those who have made an intubation error should be held responsible for your injuries and losses.

In our many years of service and representation, we have recovered more than 150 verdicts and settlements exceeding $1 million on behalf of our injured clients. We want to see our clients taken care of, for as long as they need it. For that reason, we focus on preparing cases through expert investigation, evidence-gathering, and a vast network of medical and nursing professionals to testify on your behalf.

Complications Caused by Intubation Errors

Oftentimes, patients who are seriously injured need assistance breathing. In these cases, patients often undergo intubation, a process involving the insertion of a long tube down the patient’s airway. The exterior part of the tube is then connected to a ventilator so that the patient receives a consistent flow of oxygen. The procedure can cause serious problems if performed incorrectly.

Complications during intubation can arise from the following mistakes:

  • Incorrect tube placement in the esophagus
  • The perforation of delicate tissues with the tubing
  • Dislodging or disconnecting the tubing accidentally
  • Over-inflating or under-inflating the tube
  • Failure to adequately monitor after tube placement

If a patient has previous medical conditions or issues involving their mouth or throat, such as a small or abnormally shaped throat or swelling, intubation becomes that much more difficult to perform safely. Complications can range from vocal cord paralysis to anoxic or hypoxic brain damage.

Prosecuting Intubation Errors

If an intubation complication occurs because of a medical professional’s negligence or inadequate training, you may be able to pursue just compensation for your injuries or the injuries of a loved one. At Breit Cantor, we network with respected medical professionals who often give testimony as to what they, or any reasonable physician, should have done under similar circumstances. If the intubation error was preventable or avoidable, you deserve compensation. Hold the responsible parties accountable with our skilled intubation error lawyers in Virginia.
