Holding Obstetrician-Gynecologists Legally Accountable
OB-GYNs receive specialized training in the areas of medicine in which they practice and can be held accountable when they do not live up to their training by following the correct procedures. Major types of OB-GYN malpractice include but are not limited to the following:
- Cervical cancer misdiagnosis: OB-GYNs who fail to recommend Pap smears when appropriate, read the results incorrectly, or otherwise fail to detect the symptoms of cervical cancer can be held accountable for the harm caused by delays in treatment.
- Birth injuries: OB-GYNs are responsible for taking care at all stages of the delivery process to protect children from brain injuries, shoulder dystocia and other injuries.
- Postpartum negligence: Mothers can also be seriously injured during childbirth, especially when OB-GYNs do not provide adequate postpartum care.
- Reproductive treatment errors: Failure by OB-GYNs to provide appropriate reproductive treatment can leave women infertile or otherwise seriously injured.
