Injuries Caused by OB-GYN Negligence

Representing Women and Children Injured Due to Obstetric Negligence

As a woman, you trust that your obstetrician or gynecologist will do everything necessary to keep you in good health. When you're pregnant, this means that your OB-GYN will also take care of the life of your unborn child. But unfortunately, sometimes negligence occurs and obstetricians fail to provide the standard of care required.

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., in New York City, our birth injury lawyers represent women and children who were seriously injured or died because of obstetric negligence. If you suspect that you or your child was injured because of your physician's negligence, talk to a medical malpractice attorney you can trust.

Gynecology and Obstetrics Negligence

Injuries caused by OB-GYN negligence are not limited to women of a certain age. Whether you are trying to conceive, already pregnant, going through menopause or going in for regular checkups, your health and life can be affected by a mistake or misdiagnosis. Such mistakes not only take a toll on you, but can also affect your spouse, child and family.

Gynecology and obstetrics negligence can result in:

  • Failure to diagnose cervical cancer
  • Infections or injury to internal organs during gynecological surgery
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Perforation or damage to the uterus, which can affect conception
  • An incorrect prescription for oral contraceptives or other contraceptive devices that can cause serious side effects
  • Infertility
  • Sterilization caused by infection or injury
  • Failure of requested sterilization
  • Delayed diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Negligent fetal monitoring
  • Failure to prevent a precipitous labor
  • Failure to administer a timely C-section, thus causing birth injuries or birth defects
  • Improper post-delivery care, resulting in hypoxia, cerebral palsy or other injuries to your child
  • Wrongful death
