For many women, fertility is an important part of their lives. The ability to have children, is seen by many women as a natural step in their lives. Sometimes errors are made which can affect a woman’s ability to have children.
Also, ensuring that any gynaecological issues, whether through pregnancy, general health or fertility, that do arise, are treated quickly and effectively is extremely important. Unfortunately, errors in diagnosis such as infection, cervical cancer and other conditions can lead to devastating consequences.
If you don’t wish to become pregnant, failure in contraceptive devices can equally lead to unintended consequences, stress and worry.
Our medical negligence team deal with a number of different types of claims and we can assist with many different areas such as:
- Failure to diagnose or treat a medical condition, leading to infertility
- Claims arising from negligent treatment or a poorly performed procedure such as a D&C
- Delay in diagnosis or treatment of cervical cancer
- Pelvic floor and post operative complications
- Abortion errors
- Contraception failures and errors
At the heart of every clinical negligence claim, is a search for answers and explanations of what has gone wrong. Negligence causing the loss of fertility, or as can often happen, the failure of contraceptive devices, leading to unexpected pregnancy can lead to psychiatric distress and harm to a woman.
Our role at Birchall Blackburn Law is to ease the burden of litigation and search for answers on your behalf.
