An Organ Puncture or Perforation During Surgery Is Medical Malpractice

Patients and doctors understand that surgery comes with a certain amount of risk. Many years of perfecting medical procedure has reduced that risk significantly. That does not stop problems from occurring. When those problems involve negligence on the part of the surgeon, that person needs to be held accountable for his or her actions. If one of your organs suffered a puncture or perforation during surgery, our lawyers can tell you whether you have a legitimate medical malpractice claim.

The Consequences of Organ Puncture

The most common victim of organ perforation during surgery is the bowel. Because of its length and structure it can very easily be caught by the edge of a knife. The intestines, stomach and liver are other potential candidates for surgical damage.

If any of these crucial systems are damaged, waste can enter the body cavity causing infection, internal bleeding, as well as many other problems. If you are suffering any of the following after surgery, your surgeon may have caused more harm than good.

Common Signs of Organ Damage from Surgery Include:

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

Surgeons are trained to avoid damaging internal organs and procedures are in place that compel them to check for any damage that may have occurred before closing the incision. Unfortunately, many surgeons are poorly trained or fail to follow these procedures.

Our attorneys look closely at your medical records to determine whether all of the proper precautions were taken and the correct equipment was used during the surgery. We also look at when the damage was correctly diagnosed and the actions that followed.

With more than a decade of experience in medical malpractice, we are able to identify the problem and show how the negligence occurred. We pursue full and fair compensation to cover the costs of the harm done to you and the damage that may affect the rest of your life. By holding your surgeon accountable for negligence, you may prevent this horrible tragedy from occurring to anyone else.

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.
