Most women require some form of gynaecological care and treatment during their lives and it is an area where unfortunately a significant amount of claims can arise following negligent treatment. Claims often arise as a result of a misdiagnosis or a failure or delay in diagnosis. Alternatively problems may arise following surgery if for instance an inexperienced surgeon causes further damage or injury.
If you have suffered as a result of negligent treatment, our specialist medical negligence solicitors will be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Our Client Promise
Our expert Medical Negligence Lawyers will be able to advise you on whether you have a good chance of claiming compensation, as well as assessing your claim’s value. All of our initial consultation work is free and the vast majority of claims go on to be funded by a conditional fee agreement (also known as “no win, no fee”).
We pride ourselves on our customer service. As part of our customer promise, we will seek to obtain an early settlement for you. In some cases we are able to obtain interim compensation payments on your behalf that can be used to pay for your continuing care or reduce any financial hardship you may be suffering as a result of your injury. We also aim to ensure that you get all the rehabilitation support that you need.
Common Gynaecological Claims
A claim for medical negligence compensation may arise from: –
- Mis-prescription of contraceptive medicine
- Failed sterilisation (wrongful birth)
- Bladder and bowel problems leading to incontinence
- Wrong site surgery (for example incorrect removal of ovary or fallopian tube)
- Failure to correctly insert/remove coil
