No Win No Fee Gynaecology Negligence Claims
We understand that women may feel embarrassed or anxious when seeking medical care regarding a gynaecological issue. Moreover, talking about subsequent clinical negligence can make their experience even more stressful. That is why we have experienced at handling claims for compensation for gynaecology negligence claims.
In short, the lawyers we work with at The Medical Negligence Experts recognise the sensitivity to deal with their clients.
What is Gynaecology Negligence?
Gynaecology is a specialist branch of medicine dealing with the female reproductive system. Clinical negligence can occur either when a doctor misdiagnoses an illness. Or, when their treatment causes further injury to their patient. Examples of the devastating effects of gynaecology negligence or gynaecological treatment from medical professionals include:
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose through neglectful examination.
- Failing to follow up on abnormal cervical smear results.
- Causing injury to other organs during surgery.
- Unnecessary surgical treatment, such as hysterectomy.
- Inadequate post-surgical monitoring.
- Failed tubal ligation (sterilisation).
- Caesarean section failures.
- Perforating the uterus while inserting the contraceptive coil.
- Failed abortions.
- Any other gynaecological procedure injury claims.
Another significant cause of gynaecology negligence is how informative they are. In essence, failing to inform the patient fully about the benefits and risks of proposed treatments. Without this, a patient cannot truly give informed consent.
How Can We Help?
The Medical Negligence Experts have secured compensation for victims making gynaecological negligence claims. In order to deliver, we don’t merely provide you with expert legal service. They do so in a way which treats you as an individual, something you should always expect from medical negligence solicitors.
Our clients are not mere case numbers but people who have undergone injury or illness through someone else’s error. We accept that mistakes happen in the medical profession, even with gynaecological claims. However, when someone’s health suffers through receiving negligent care, they should expect an explanation and compensation.
Your compensation claim begins when you contact The Medical Negligence Experts. We will:
- talk to you about the event;
- investigate and assess the circumstances surrounding your injury/birth injuries, and;
- ascertain whether your claim is valid.
It is important to be thorough at this point, also. Not only do you have to prove negligence was present, but you also need to go further than that. You’ll also need to show this harms your health in some way. Moreover, that another, unavoidable, issue was not the actual cause of your injury.
If you decided to proceed, our negligence team will compile the evidence to substantiate your claim. Accordingly, this can include obtaining medical notes from the staff who treat you. In addition, there’s an assessment from an independent medical expert who can verify your situation.
Once this is complete, we will contact those responsible. At that point, we’ll ask them to acknowledge the outcome of their negligent care and compensate you accordingly.
Reactions from the defendant to gynaecology negligence claims
The other party will conduct their investigation and either return with an offer of compensation or deny liability. If they agree they were responsible through their medical treatments, we will negotiate on your behalf. Our goal is to act decisively until we reach a fair and reasonable amount of compensation.
But if they refuse, we will refer your case to the courts. Consequently, we’ll continue to act on your behalf until we reach a satisfactory agreement. Often, cases can find a settlement just before they reach court.
Medical negligence claims need to be brought to court within:
- three years of the injury itself, or;
- three years of the moment the negligence is formally connected to a patient’s injury or illness.
It is beneficial to start your claim as soon as possible. In essence, it can take considerable time to gather evidence and negotiate with the other party.
A majority of personal injury and medical negligence claims are settled before reaching court, as we mentioned. As a result, we would do our best to obtain this outcome for you.

Factoring in Time Limits
Because so much time passes, you might think that a claim has no chance of success. But that’s simply not the case, as certain claims are claims dealing with time beyond the initial exposure. At The Medical Negligence Experts, we work with solicitors with demonstrable experience in obtaining compensation.
It is the nature of these claims that they often arise long after the exposure. Yet that does not mean that a good compensation lawyer like ours cannot successfully obtain compensation through clinical negligence claims.
