Examples of gynaecology surgery and treatment medical negligence claims

There are many examples of medical negligence claims involving gynaecological issues:

  • delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage
  • sub-standard management of a termination
  • failed sterilisation
  • mistakes which cause, or contribute to, infertility or sterilisation
  • delayed diagnosis of a gynaecological cancer such as womb cancer (endometrial cancer), ovarian cancer and smear test errors
  • failure to diagnose conditions such as endometriosis
  • surgical errors during surgery (e.g. laparoscopy, hysterectomy) resulting in injury to the bladder, bowel or uterus 
  • leaving surgical instruments or swabs inside the body after surgery.

How a compensation claim can help

A compensation claim can cover the cost of your treatment, care and loss of earnings. It can also provide answers about what happened and why, during your care. Lots of people also want to be sure that lessons are learnt by doctors, nurses and hospitals.

What causes a gynaecology claim?

A gynaecology claim can be very distressing and we are here to help.

Healthcare professionals must be able to detect early warning signs of cervical or gynaecological cancer. Examples of possible negligence claims include, failing to:

  • Recognise abnormal cells from a cervical smear test
  • Detect and treat dyskariosis prior to it developing into cervical cancer
  • Promptly react to symptoms, for example inter-menstrual and post-coital bleeding
  • Refer patients for appropriate smear tests.

Other common examples of potential gynaecology claims include:

  • Use of the incorrect embryos during IVF treatment
  • Failure by the surgeon to recognise damage to the bladder or bowel during hysterectomy surgery
  • An instrument negligently being left inside a patient following a caesarean section.
