Connecticut medical malpractice attorneys Russ Berkowitz and Jennifer Amdur filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Danbury Hospital and a Danbury anesthesiologist on behalf of a client who allegedly sustained sedation-induced respiratory depression, hypoxia and ultimately prolonged cardiac arrest following the administration of spinal anesthesia before knee replacement surgery.

According to the suit, the client has been left with a profound brain injury as a result of the defendants’ negligence.

A brain injury is a serious, life-altering injury that can change a person’s life forever. Persons that sustain serious brain injuries must have timely access to expert trauma care, rehabilitation, lifelong disease management and personalized services depending upon the type and severity of the injury.

The purpose of a medical malpractice lawsuit is not only to expose medical mistakes and hold the responsible parties accountable, but also to provide the injured with access to the treatments and services he or she requires to achieve the highest quality of life following injury.
