OB GYN Malpractice Lawyers
Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Malpractice occurs when an obstetrician or gynecological staff member fails to provide the required level of care. Obstetrical or gynecological misadventure can put a woman’s health at risk, as well as cause severe bodily damage and pregnancy complications for a mother or infant.
Hospitals and other obstetrical care clinics must assure that the standard of care is maintained and that their employees comply with safety measures. They should also establish a climate in which gynecological health professionals are encouraged to bring concerns to light. A medical error may worsen an existing problem or cause additional problems if a physician’s negligent actions or inaction are not addressed appropriately. A doctor’s improper conduct during prenatal or postnatal care can result in serious damage to a mother or her newborn.
Obstetricians had the second-highest number of medical malpractice claims for OB/GYNs in Maine. According to research, 70 to 85 percent of obstetricians have been sued at least once for medical negligence.
If you or a woman in your family has been injured as a result of a medical practitioner’s blunder during prenatal care, perinatal care, or gynecological treatment, the legal counsel of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer may be essential. Contact Texas Personal Injury Lawyers for a free consultation to learn whether you have a chance of obtaining compensation for OB/GYN malpractice.
Medical Negligence in OB/GYN Practice
According to attorneys who specialize in obstetrics-gynecology negligence cases, similar to other medical malpractice claims, OB/GYNs must have the backing of physicians with competent and credible opinions on the mistakes that harmed the patient. We have access to an excellent group of medical professionals who can examine the circumstances of your case and identify negligence indicators.
Examples of OB/GYN malpractice can include:
- Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), commonly known as preeclampsia, must be correctly diagnosed and treated in order to survive.
- Misdiagnosis or failure to detect or treat prenatal diseases such as gestational diabetes is possible.
- Surgical errors during a hysterectomy or C-section delivery
- Unnecessary surgery
- Mistakes in testing for Down syndrome and other congenital disorders
- Failure to determine prenatal conditions such as tubal or ectopic pregnancy
- Failure to identify umbilical cord complications
- Birth injuries
- Improper use of forceps
- Failure to diagnose cervical cancer in time for adequate treatment
Did you know that where you reside might influence the amount of attention you receive? Over 28 million American women of reproductive age live in rural areas, and over half of U.S. counties do not have a practicing OB/GYN. An inadequate supply of specialized gynecological health care may lead to a rise in medical malpractice claims.
