Most women are nervous and embarrassed when they have to seek treatment from a gynaecologist. If you have felt vulnerable and anxious when seeing your gynaecologist, you are certainly not alone. It is always easy to reassure yourself that the specialist knows what they are doing and will look after your best interests. Sometimes mistakes happen, though, and they can have devastating consequences on a woman’s life and that of her family. If you feel that you have had unnecessary or erroneous treatment, you might want to consult a solicitor who is an expert in medical negligence claims. Negligence encompasses both mistakes and neglect. Some examples of known gynaecologist errors are:
We know how lonely it can be when it feels as if no one is listening, especially when the subject is so intimate and personal. We recognise that a gynaecological or obstetric injury is difficult to live with and talk about and we want to make sure you are heard.
We treat our clients with sensitivity and respect; and assure you that our aim is to carefully establish the facts so we can determine if the gynaecologist was negligent in his or her duty of care toward you. It is often reassurance enough to know there are people out there willing to help, and perhaps we can in some way help with getting compensation for any expenses you have incurred due to the injury, and compensated for the psychological trauma and distress you have experienced.
