Gynaecology compensation claims

Gynaecology claims concern the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system. Invasive surgery can not only be very painful, it can also be a very vulnerable experience. If you feel that your treatment was poor and that you may have experienced incorrect diagnosis or substandard surgical treatment then please find a selection of procedures we can discuss with you.

Types of gynaecological claims

  • Cancer; including vaginal, cervical, ovarian and CIN (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia)
  • Infections; including Chlamydia and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Uterine disorders; including endometriosis and fibroids
  • Ovarian disorders, including polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Genital prolapsed
  • Failed sterilisation
  • Inappropriate technical performance of a surgical procedure eg incorrect insertion of a contraceptive coil, badly performed termination of pregnancy or hysterectomy or incorrectly sutured episiotomy.

Many woman receive gynaecological surgery through the course of their lifetime and most of the time these procedures are diagnosed and treated correctly. We do see instances where the treatment has not always been carried out correctly, either at diagnosis stage when misdiagnosis has led to cancer or after care where clinical negligence led to infection or more surgery.
