Filing OB/Gyn Malpractice Claims
When Your Doctor Fails to Care For You
Many women rely on the expertise or our obstetricians and gynecologists to provide competent care during a pregnancy. Your doctor is required to uphold a professional certain standard of care that does its best to preserve your life, and to not cause you injury in the process. Simply being injured at the hands of your medical care providers may not give you grounds for a medical malpractice claim. However, certain circumstances do warrant legal action if your medical provider acted in negligence. When this happens, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.
OB/GYN Malpractice claims often involve the following:
- Failure to correctly diagnose a female reproductive illness, such as ovarian or cervical cancer
- Failure to recognize and diagnose preeclampsia, a life-threatening condition for both mother and baby
- Low-quality or improper prenatal care
- Missing a tubal pregnancy, which can lead to infertility or death, in extreme cases
- Surgical errors during a D&C
- Failure to order life-saving tests, including pap smears and mammograms
- Birth injuries to infant during labor and delivery
