Weston OB/GYN Malpractice Attorneys
Injured by a Negligent Gynecologist or Obstetrician?
When you visit your gynecologist or obstetrician, you have the right to assume that they will always perform their duties with the utmost care and do everything within their power to avoid any harm or mistreatment. At Rash Mueller, we are aware that not all OB/GYN practitioners respect the importance of safety and may become negligent in their work, leading to serious bodily harm to their patients. By some estimates, nearly 50% of all obstetricians and gynecologists will commit dangerous malpractice at some point in their careers.
If you are suffering due to the actions of your obstetrician or gynecologist, you need to take legal action right away. Otherwise, you could end up paying for any related damages out of your own pocket.

Mistakes Lead to Serious Problems
According to a 2006 New England Journal of Medical study, approximately 60% of all victims of medical malpractice are female and 20% are newborns. This data suggests that OB/GYN professionals need to exercise great caution when working on or with their patients, as their mistakes could be the leading cause of medical malpractice cases and patient injury. After all, the people who come to them for help rely on them to provide medical care that improves their overall health. When negligence or carelessness come into play, the exact opposite is prone to happen.
Common mistakes committed by gynecologists/obstetricians include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Failure to conduct appropriate tests
- Failure to schedule proper follow-up care
- Inadequate prenatal care for pregnant patients
- Surgical mistakes
In extreme cases, their medical malpractice could lead to birth injuries to both mother and child. Newborns subject to medical negligence could suffer from brain damage, such as cerebral palsy, or physical wounds, such as shoulder dystocia.
