Surgical Errors

At the Odom Law Firm, our Northwest Arkansas personal injury lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience representing area residents injured in accidents. From our Fayetteville law offices, established in 1982, we serve clients across the country. Whether you have been catastrophically injured in a truck accident or as a result of a defective product, we can help you hold the responsible party accountable and recover the compensation you deserve.


When you entrusted your well-being to a qualified surgeon, you did so rightfully expecting that the doctor would adhere to accepted standards of care. If you have suffered harm because of a surgical error, you should consult with a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer. To protect your rights to full, fair compensation, you should get legal counsel promptly. A negligent surgeon, nurse or hospital may be held liable to compensate you for losses and expenses, including:
  • Additional medical treatments
  • Corrective surgery
  • Lost wages due to time lost from work
  • Death of a family member who died because of surgical malpractice


At Odom Law Firm, we advocate on behalf of patients and their families who have been harmed through surgery mistakes, such as:
  • Foreign object left in body (leaving in a sponge, cloth or instrument)
  • Operating on wrong surgical site (wrong site surgery)
  • Cutting off wrong appendage
  • Undetected or uncorrected damage to adjacent organ
  • Anesthesia error
  • Medication error
  • Post-operation error such as failing to monitor for and treat infection in a timely manner
Odom Law Firm is the only law firm in the state of Arkansas to have obtained a jury verdict on the basis of violation of informed consent laws. We bring cases against responsible parties in cases of surgical malpractice, including surgeons, anesthesia units, nursing departments and hospitals. Our legal opponents know that we will take a case to trial if necessary.
