Helping Victims of Gynaecology Negligence

There are various types of gynaecology claims including:

  • delay in diagnosis of ovarian cancer
  • failed contraception / abortion / sterilisation
  • perforation of the uterus, bowel or bladder during surgery
  • birth related injuries (including episiotomies)
  • retained swabs or instruments
  • infertility as a result of treatment errors

Gynaecology negligence can also arise from a medical professional’s failure to fully inform the patient about the risks and benefits of the proposed treatment (informed consent).

In the majority of cases gynaecologists provide a high standard of medical care but sometimes things go wrong. Patients should be able to trust their medical professional to provide them with adequate care and treatment. When things don’t go right it can lead to long-term physical and emotional damage.

Time limits play a crucial role in determining the eligibility of a compensation claim. Therefore, if you believe that you have suffered harm due to the negligence of a gynaecologist or other healthcare professional it is essential that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. In England, Scotland and Wales there is generally a three-year time limit from the date of the negligence or the date when you became aware of the injury or illness caused by negligence; whichever is later. However, there are some exceptions to this rule and it is best to consult a solicitor to understand how this might apply to your case.
