Obstetrics and Gynecology Malpractice
Obstetrical negligence and/or gynecological negligence may be the cause of cerebral palsy, bone fractures, a brachial plexus or lumbosacral plexus injury, or internal injuries to the fetus, such as adrenal hemorrhage, renal hemorrhage, and liver hematoma.
Spinal cord injuries, cranial nerve injuries, peripheral nerve injuries and laryngeal nerve injuries may also be caused by the midwife or obstetrician failing to conform to the standard of care during delivery of your baby.
A skull fracture is but one example of an injury that may be caused by the use of forceps. Other operative, forceps or vacuum extraction injuries may occur during vaginal delivery.
Obstetricians are commonly sued for anoxic birth injuries (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)), birth trauma, failure to promptly perform a C-section (delayed Cesarean section), failure to monitor fetal heart rate (FHR) strips or failure to act when those indicate fetal distress calling for action, misplacement of an epidural catheter, and inadequate assessment and treatment of pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome.
Gynecologists are commonly sued for surgical errors, delayed diagnosis of cancer, and failure to follow up on Pap smear results.
They may be sued when problems arise after transvaginal mesh surgery. Mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. According to the FDA, complications from mesh surgery include erosion through the vaginal epithelium, infection, pain, and bowel perforation or bladder perforation.
