Houston Retained Medical Objects Attorney

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 P.C. can help.
