We understand that women may feel embarrassed or anxious when seeking medical care regarding a gynaecological issue and that talking about subsequent clinical negligence can make their experience even more stressful. That is why, as well as having experienced handling claims for compensation for gynaecology negligence, the team of lawyers at The Medical Negligence Experts are aware of the additional sensitivity required for dealing 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 gynaecology negligence 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).
- Perforating the uterus while inserting the contraceptive coil.
- Failed abortions.
Another significant cause of gynaecology negligence is failing to inform the patient fully about the benefits and risks of proposed treatments, so they can give informed consent.
How Can We Help?
The Medical Negligence Experts do not only provide you with an expert legal service; they do so in a way which treats you as an individual. Our clients are not case numbers but people who have undergone injury or illness through someone else’s error. We accept that mistakes happen however when someone’s health has been affected through receiving negligent care they should expect to receive an explanation and compensation.
Your compensation claim begins when you contact The Medical Negligence Experts. We will talk to you about the event, investigating and assessing the circumstances surrounding your injury to ascertain whether your claim is valid. It is important to be thorough at this point as not only do you have to prove negligence was present, you also need to show this harmed your health in some way, and that another, unavoidable, issue was the cause of your injury.
If you decided to proceed, we would compile the evidence to substantiate your claim which can include obtaining medical notes from the staff who treated you, as well as an assessment from an independent medical expert who can verify your situation. Once this is complete, we will contact those responsible asking them to acknowledge the outcome of their negligent care and compensate you accordingly.
The other party will conduct their investigation and either return with an offer of compensation or deny liability. If they agree they were responsible, we will negotiate on your behalf until we reach a fair and reasonable amount of compensation. If they refuse, we will refer your case to the courts and continue to act on your behalf until you are satisfied.
Medical negligence claims need to be brought to court within three years of injury, or of the time the negligence is formally attributed to a patient’s injury or illness. It is beneficial to start your claim as soon as possible as 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, and we would do our best to obtain this outcome for you.
