If you believe a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist, or another medical professional made a mistake that resulted in your surgical error, make sure you understand your legal rights. Make sure you talk to an experienced Houston surgical mistake attorney. You and your family could be eligible for financial compensation for your surgical mistake.

We know the law, we understand how the legal system works in Texas, and we’re prepared to go above and beyond to demand the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
What are common surgical mistakes?
Surgical mistakes can cover a wide range. Some of the most serious surgical mistake cases we handle at our law firm involve:
- Negligent amputation
- Leaving behind surgical tools inside patient's body cavity after a procedure
- Use of improperly sterilized equipment
- Anesthesiology error
- Operation on wrong body part or patient
Whatever type of surgical mistake injury or illness you’re dealing with in Texas, our law firm can review the details of your case and explain the legal options available to you, including filing a surgical mistake lawsuit.
Why do surgical mistakes happen?
Surgical mistakes happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of surgical mistakes include:
- Delay in diagnosis
- Lack of training
- Lack of sleep
- Performing an operation under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Mistakes happen, but that doesn’t excuse medical professionals from being held responsible for their actions. That’s our job and we’re proud to vigorously fight for your rights after your surgical mistake.
What makes surgical mistake cases so complicated?
Legal cases involving surgical mistakes can be very complex legal cases for many different reasons. That’s because there’s often so much at stake. That’s why you might encounter a wide range of excuses and obstacles to obtain the financial compensation you need and deserve for your surgical mistake. Reasons why include:
- Surgeon or another medical professional denies doing anything wrong
- Surgeon claims your medical condition was worse than they thought, and they are not to blame
- Surgeon or hospital conceals or destroys evidence related to your operation
- Surgeon claims your medical problem is unrelated to your surgery
- Hospital’s insurance company denies your injury claim
Why would your surgeon, the hospital or their insurance company take such aggressive actions? Because your surgical error case could be worth thousands or even millions of dollars, especially if you or a loved one sustained a serious injury or permanent disability because of their mistakes.
