Houston Texas Lawyer | Helping Victims Who’ve Retained Foreign Objects During Surgery
Almost every surgery requires sponges, surgical clamps, and other instruments. Surgeons and other medical professionals are required to follow strict protocols and procedures to ensure safety. Sadly, these protocols are too often not followed. When they are not, items are left frequently behind in the body. It goes without saying that these can produce injurious consequences including illness, postoperative infection, or organ damage.

Often, injuries resulting from retained foreign objects are apparent the moment the anesthesia wears off. In other cases, these injuries don’t reveal themselves for months, or even years down the road. That said, it’s paramount you reach out to an attorney the moment you discover your injury, as there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the timeframe injured patients have to sue. Missing this deadline can result in you permanently losing your right to compensation.
