Texas Retained Foreign Objects Medical Lawyers
Attorneys Handling Medical Object Left in the Body Lawsuits
If Your Surgeon Has Left a Strange Object in You – Our Attorneys are Here to Help
There are many checks and processes a surgeon must adhere to during an operation, including ensuring that all tools and implements are accounted for. This is to make sure a stray sponge or pair of tongs has not been left in your body after the surgery.
Sometimes if an operation is rushed or the surgeon is lacking in concentration, the incision is sewn closed with a tool or implement left inside. Many serious complications can develop, such as blood infections or organ damage, and this may result in you needing another operation or urgent medical treatment. If you find out that your surgeon has left something behind after your operation, our Houston lawyers at Hastings Law Firm can assist with your negligence case.

“We Are Missing a Tool”
Discovering that something has been left in your body after your operation is an extremely uncomfortable feeling.

Our attorneys are experienced in revealing surgical errors and securing the compensation you deserve for the injury or loss you have suffered.
Some of the most common implements left behind during surgery include:
