Obstetric Negligence

Kansas Medical Malpractice Attorneys Specializing in Obstetric Negligence Cases

An obstetrician and/or gynecologist is crucial in maintaining good health for women. A woman must put her full trust into her obstetrician/gynecologist, as they are responsible for a vital portion of what keeps a woman physically and emotionally healthy.

Unfortunately, negligence sometimes occurs in the obstetrics and gynecologic fields of medicine. Gynecology and obstetrics negligence can result in infection, hemorrhaging, infertility, miscarriage, wrongful birth, wrongful death, the loss of internal organs, and other health problems.

The physical and emotional tolls experienced by victims of OB/GYN negligence are immeasurable. Not only will the patient be affected, but so will her spouse, loved ones and family members.

Some common types of gynecology and obstetrics negligence are:

  • Perforation of the uterus during the insertion of an Inter-Uterine Device (IUD) or other devices
  • Thrombosis resulting from oral contraceptives
  • Side effects of contraceptive devices and hormones
  • Failure to recognize preeclampsia, eclampsia or other related pregnancy health risks

Obstetrics/Gynecology Surgery:

  • Injury to the internal organs
  • Infection
  • Hemorrhage
  • Sterilization caused by infection or injury
  • Unnecessary procedures
