Louisville Foreign Objects inside Body Cavity Lawyers

Depending on the operation, a surgeon will likely need to follow many steps to successfully complete a surgery. This usually means that a surgeon will need to utilize a number of different surgical tools and items, like sponges or gauze, to clean the area. Unfortunately, this often causes surgical teams to perform one of the most common surgical errors – leaving a foreign object inside a person’s body.

When surgeons leave behind items, such as sponges, clips, or even tools, the patient could suffer extremely adverse health problems that usually require another operation to remove the object and repair any internal damage. To learn more about recovering financial compensation to pay for these medical bills and related expenses caused by such a drastic error, contact the Louisville surgical errors lawyers of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Dangers of Objects Left in Body

Surgeons and other medical professionals are required to go through years of schooling and training before receiving their medical license in an effort to protect the health and well-being of patients. Unfortunately, even surgeons with years of education and experience can make a mistake or act negligently and fail to remove all objects from a person’s body after surgery. Some common consequences of this surgical mistake include the following:

  • Risk of infection
  • Internal bleeding or other damages
  • Severe discomfort and pain
  • Tissue death

While any of the above side effects can usually be remedied with another surgery to remove the object and address related health issues, this usually costs the victim hundreds or even thousands of more dollars and causes immeasurable pain and suffering.
