Gynaecology medical negligence claims arise where errors are made in diagnosing and treating disorders and conditions of the female reproductive system. Generally, gynecological examinations and procedures proceed as planned without complication. However, there are circumstances where errors are made, which can result in significant physical and psychological injury. 

If you have suffered from a gynecological injury which you believe was caused by medical negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
