Airway Injuries

Bleeke Dillon Crandall has handled cases involving airway injuries and damages caused or related to breathing (or endotracheal) tubes. These cases have involved issues ranging from complications associated with emergent and non-emergent intubations to the proper size of the endotracheal tube and appropriate tests to protect against airway injuries. Litigation of these cases requires familiarity with the medicine and science involving the pulmonary system, laryngeal structures and proper techniques for intubating and ventilating patients.

We have been fortunate to interact with some of the world's top experts in the fields of pulmonology, otolaryngology and critical care medicine, who can assist in preparing and presenting the technical aspects of these cases in an understandable fashion to judges and juries.
