Gynaecological injury claims

  • Very occasionally, medical negligence can occur due to negligent treatment, failed treatment or missed or late diagnosis related to gynaecological problems.
  • If you think you have suffered due to medical negligence, you should contact a solicitor as soon as possible.

A gynaecologist deals exclusively with women’s medical problems, diagnosing and treating conditions relating to the female reproductive system. These treatments can have devastating consequences if they are not undertaken with the appropriate degree of skill and care.

What is a gynaecological injury?

A gynaecological injury refers to any physical harm or trauma that affects the female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and vagina. These injuries can be caused by various factors, such as childbirth, surgery, sexual assault, or medical procedures.

What is a gynaecological injury claim?

A gynaecological injury claim is a legal case where a person seeks compensation for harm or injury caused to their reproductive system due to medical negligence, surgical errors, or accidents. This can include a missed or late diagnosis of abnormal smears which can result in cancer; failure to perform a hysterectomy correctly leading to injury to the bladder or bowels; perforation of the uterus due to negligent insertion of inter-uterine contraceptive devices; inadequate or improper treatment of endometriosis; failure of contraception or female sterilisation or failed abortion and subsequent birth and maternal injury during childbirth.
