Gynecological & Obstetric Claims

Maternal obstetric or labour complications can take many forms which can affect the course of birth and the post-natal condition of both mother and baby.

During the pregnancy/pre-natal period, if a mother is suffering from any condition such as gestational diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, or blood clotting abnormalities, she may require continuous medical management. Many conditions can complicate the course of a pregnancy and must be properly diagnosed and treated.

We recognise that in the vast majority of instances gynecological or obstetric consultants exercise the highest possible standards of ethical and medical care in the diagnosis, treatment and after care of their patients. We also recognise that unfortunately sometimes things can go wrong.

The consequences of medical negligence for mother and/or baby can take many forms:

  • Emotional distress due to a life altering experience
  • Financial worry, reduced earning capacity, and additional medical bills
  • Pain and suffering

Medical complications such as uterine rupture, cervical laceration, liver injury and clotting abnormalities require timely recognition and management to prevent permanent injury or sadly in rare cases in the death of the mother during the birth process.

If you believe that your antenatal care, delivery of your child or postnatal care was not properly handled then you may have a claim for compensation for your injuries.
