OB/GYN Errors

Los Angeles Birth Injury Attorneys

OB/GYN (obstetrician/gynecologist) visits are important in a woman's life, before, during and after pregnancy and childbirth. Obstetrics and gynecology are specialized fields that deal with childbirth (obstetrics) and the health of the female reproductive system (gynecology). OB/GYN is a term commonly used for a physician who specializes in both fields. Unfortunately, although these doctors do a lot of good and will delivery many, many healthy babies during their years of practice, mistakes do occur. OB/GYN errors can lead to serious birth injuries, birth trauma, and even death. Both mother and baby are at risk if an OB/GYN fails to provide a standard level of medical care.

It is important to seek medical attention and to contact an attorney if your child is showing signs of a birth injury and you believe that this was a result of OB/GYN error or medical malpractice of some kind. In these situations, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible doctor or medical facility. With the help of a skilled Los Angeles birth injury attorney, you may be able to seek justice and recover financial damages for medical care and other expenses.

How Do OB/GYN Errors Occur?

An OB/GYN error may occur when a doctor is overworked, tired, inexperienced, or simply careless. They essentially involve a failure to provide professional medical care at the current standard, resulting in injury to mother or baby, or both. Some examples of OB/GYN errors may include:

  • Failure to diagnose a medical condition
  • Incorrect estimation of conception/delivery date
  • Negligent fetal testing
  • Negligent fetal monitoring during childbirth
  • Delayed cesarean section
  • Improper delivery technique
  • Mishandling of forceps or vacuum in assisted delivery
