Anaesthetic Awareness Medical Negligence

Michael is a direct access barrister who has been assisting individuals and their families bringing anaesthetic awareness related medical negligence claims for over 20 years.

Anaesthetic awareness is a preventable complication that can lead to significant psychological consequences, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. It occurs when the depth of anaesthesia is inadequate to achieve a state of unconsciousness. The most severe cases of intraoperative awareness occur when patients recall events that occurred while under anaesthetic, including pain, paralysis, or feelings of impending death.

If you or a member of your family should need assistance with a case involving injury sustained during a surgical procedure where anaesthesia was inadequate, Michael should be able to help you.

Michael is now registered as a direct access barrister so you can instruct him directly.
