Houston Retained Medical Objects Lawyers
Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Retained Surgical Objects Lawsuits
Retained Foreign Objects Don’t Belong In Your Body — Consult Our Lawyers To Pursue Justice
All members of a surgical team are required to follow specific procedures during surgery, including counting the number of objects used during the surgery, such as sponges, clamps and surgical instruments, to confirm that nothing accidentally gets left behind.
Unfortunately, whether due to a surgery running behind or a member of the team not paying proper attention, patients are closed up with foreign objects left inside. This can cause infection, organ perforation and numerous other health problems that will require further and more complicated surgeries. If you have discovered that a foreign object has been retained in your body after surgery in Houston, the attorneys of Hastings Law Firm can help.

“I Think We Missed One”
Finding out that an object used during surgery was left inside of you after you were closed up is very disturbing. In most cases, you learn about this because of health issues the retained foreign object has caused, not because the surgical team admits to their mistake. The medical profession frequently throws up obstacles to holding any of its members accountable for errors. Our lawyers know how to overcome these obstacles and obtain full and fair compensation for the harm done to you.
