Surgery on the Wrong Part Of The Body?

All surgery comes with risks. However, one of those risks should not be having surgery performed on the wrong part of the body. Surgical teams are required to read charts, confirm that they know they’re working on the correct patient, the correct area, and check in with each other before cutting into a patient. When they fail to take these precautions, you can end up with a very expensive surgery that doesn’t solve your problem and may cause others. If you have been the victim of surgical errors, our Houston medical malpractice lawyers can help.

Doctors Are Supposed To Check Before They Start

Several years ago, the commission that accredits U.S. hospitals created the Universal Protocol for Preventing Wrong Site, Wrong Procedure and Wrong Person Surgery. To follow this protocol, doctors and their surgical teams are required to:

  • Ensure that the doctor is matched with the correct patient and is performing surgery on the correct part of the body prior to beginning any part of the procedure
  • Have the surgeon mark the part of the body that is to be operated on
  • Have a timeout for the entire team prior to beginning surgery to confirm that they have the correct patient and are performing the correct surgery on the right part of the body

When doctors fail to do this and operate on the wrong part of the body, you end up dealing with the negative results. We can help you hold them accountable for their negligence.

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.
