Minnesota OBGYN Negligence Lawyer

When obstetrics mistakes put mother and baby at risk

Have you or your newborn been injured due to any form of OBGYN malpractice? Obstetrics and gynecological malpractice are far too common and put the lives and health of the baby and mother at risk.

Obstetrics is a branch of medicine that pertains to the care and treatment of women during their pregnancy, the process of childbirth, after the delivery and throughout the recovery period. Many OBYGN malpractice cases involve childbirth deliveries in which the improper use of forceps and other risky delivery room instruments causes significant harm to the newborn. Sometimes the circumstances leading to a difficult birth were neglected and disregarded by the medical staff during the pregnancy.

Some conditions that are common in obstetrical negligence cases include:

  • Failure to diagnose gynecological diseases
  • Failure to detect an ectopic pregnancy
  • Improper hysterectomy procedure
  • Failure to diagnose placenta previa
  • Doctor mistake that results in sexual dysfunction
  • Prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage
  • Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries
  • Fetal death
  • Maternal death

Failure to perform typical routine treatment and examinations throughout the pregnancy can also lead to serious complications that could have a fatal result on the mother and infant. If you feel you or your newborn is a victim of OBGYN malpractice you may be entitled to compensation. Talk to an experienced OBGYN malpractice attorney.
