Most women will need some form of gynaecological care during their lives. Investigations and treatments for gynaecological problems are among the most common medical procedures.

Gynecological claims are wide ranging and can vary due to the array of often complex procedures carried out in this area. Gynaecological claims can include:

  • Anaesthetic care;
  • Cancer misdiagnosis;
  • Colposcopy;
  • Damage caused during abortion, and other abortion-related issues;
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C);
  • Errors made during abortion operations;
  • Failed sterilisation operations & wrongful birth;
  • Failure to diagnose pregnancy;
  • Hospital infections;
  • Hysterectomies;
  • Myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal);
  • Oophrectomy (ovarian removal);
  • Perforation of the uterus during procedures including the insertion of contraceptive coils;
  • Post-operative complications;
  • Problems arising from prescribed contraception;
  • Salpingectomy (fallopian tube removal); and
  • Unnecessary or failed procedures.

Gynaecological claim categories

Gynaecological claims can fall into one of two categories:

  • Failure to treat or diagnose a Gynaecological complication; or
  • Positive action by a doctor which causes a Gynaecological injury.

Failure to treat or diagnose – This can include a failure to diagnose a Gynaecological condition by failing to carry out appropriate tests or misreading test results after having carried out the correct tests.

Positive action leading to Gynaecological injury – This can include carrying out an incorrect procedure faced with a certain set of circumstances or having selected the correct procedure in the circumstances, carrying out the procedure in the incorrect manner.

If you have suffered a Gynaecological injury as a result of treatment you have received or as a result of a failure by a doctor to diagnose a condition then you may have a potential medical negligence claim.
