Kendall Surgical Tools Left Behind Attorney

Most surgical procedures involve the use of towels, gauze, sponges, surgical clamps and other medical equipment. Unfortunately, injuries may result when any of these items are left inside of a person and the incisions are closed. Leaving foreign objects in patients is a form of medical malpractice and victims, who must deal with the physical consequences, may be able to pursue compensation from those who are liable.

At the Miami law firm of Ferrer Shane, our attorneys represent clients who have suffered serious injuries after foreign objects have been left in their body after surgery. Our medical malpractice lawyers have extensive experience handling claims of negligence in South Florida hospitals and clinics. If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, it is in your best interest to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.

Medical Malpractice Leading to Retained Foreign Objects Following Surgery

Our firm has handled a wide range of medical malpractice cases involving surgical errors and foreign objects left inside patients, which can cause damages that include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Chronic pain
  • Postoperative infection
  • Perforation or damage to organs

Hospitals and clinics are supposed to have a system of checks that are designed to prevent accidents that involve the retention of foreign objects inside a patient’s body. This includes accounting for all surgical instruments and supplies and doing manual and visual sweeps of the incision before closing. When surgeons and other staff fail to take these simple measures, it can cause significant damage.
