Home > Hospital-malpractice > Obgyn-error

A regular trip to the obstetrician or gynecologist (Ob/Gyn) should be a part of every woman's health maintenance program. Millions of women trust their Ob/Gyn to assess their reproductive health and treat any conditions that may cause them or their unborn babies harm. However, Ob/Gyns sometimes make mistakes that can lead to undue injury or harm. Unfortunately, Ob/Gyn errors account for a disproportionately large number of medical malpractice cases.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury because of an Ob/Gyn error, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses. Please contact us today for a free consultation with a caring and experienced medical malpractice attorney who can help you understand your legal rights.

  • Incorrect estimation of birth date
  • Improper prenatal testing
  • Failure to perform C-section in a timely manner
