Nicking an Organ or Causing a Rupture While During Surgery is Often Negligence

Everyone knows that any operation carries some danger. Advances in hospital processes have dramatically lessened the chances of danger. Unfortunately, complications are still common. When complications occur as a result of malpractice, the responsible party must be held to account for their mistake. If you believe that one of your organs was nicked or you have sustained a rupture in your operation, our attorneys can determine if you have a valid negligence lawsuit.

The attorneys of Hastings Law Firm understand the distress a patient feels after suffering malpractice as we have worked with many clients who have experienced this. We work hard to obtain the highest possible compensation and ensure that the negligent parties are held liable for their actions. Our strong record of victorious outcomes reveals how dedicated we are in assisting those who have sustained harm during their operation.

Our entire Houston-based legal office cares about you and feels great sympathy for your situation.

This attitude ensures that we invest in every case and work all the more diligently for a just and fair conclusion.

Results of a Nicked Organ

Bowel injuries are very frequent injuries resulting from a nicked organ. It is a long and complication organ and surgeons must be careful not to damage it inadvertently. Other common injuries that occur during surgery involve the intestines, stomach and liver.
When an organ is harmed, toxins can flow into the area resulting in disease, inner bleeding or a variety of other health issues. If you have sustained a surgical injury, your doctor has caused you damage instead of healing you. Common injuries are:

  • Swollen abdomen
  • Fever
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Bowel dysfunction
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Doctors are well-educated to prevent inadvertent harm and there are processes to ensure the operated area is inspected before concluding the operation. However, many doctors do not have the appropriate training or do not adhere to the processes.

Our lawyers will review your hospital history to discover if any processes were not followed or improper implements were applied during your operation. We can also see whether the injury was properly identified and dealt with to avoid further harm to you.

Our firm has worked for over 10 years in the area of medical negligence and we are experienced in recognizing whether a client has suffered due to malpractice. We seek the compensation you deserve for your injury that could have a life-long impact. We hope to avoid anyone else suffering as you have by ensuring the responsible party is held to account for their mistake.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
