Types of gynaecological or fertility negligence

Although most people receive excellent medical care, there are many types of gynaecological and fertility negligence that could be the grounds for a claim.

You may be due compensation if you’ve experienced:

Testicular and cervical cancer claims

With early diagnosis and treatment, testicular cancer usually has an excellent recovery rate. Cervical cancer, when detected early through screening, also tends to be very treatable. However, an incorrect or late diagnosis can lead to a worsening of symptoms and more invasive treatment being needed, with potentially serious consequences for the patient.

If you experienced errors in your cancer diagnosis or treatment, or it was delayed for reasons that could have been avoided, you may be entitled to compensation.

Our highly-rated medical negligence solicitors specialise in misdiagnosis and late cancer diagnosis claims and can give you the expert legal advice and compassionate support you need to pursue the compensation, and the answers, you deserve.

Gynaecological surgery claims

Complications during gynaecological surgery are usually unforeseen and need to be treated immediately as an emergency, with no time to explain what’s happened or the action that needs to be taken. This can leave you feeling confused about the treatment you received while also having to deal with the serious – perhaps even life-changing – consequences of it.

A surgical injury may involve the perforation of an organ, particularly the bowel, which can cause serious infections such as sepsis. If a surgeon failed to recognise and address the injury satisfactorily during your operation or any healthcare professional failed to notice your resulting symptoms, you could have grounds to bring a gynaecological surgery claim.

Fertility negligence claims

If you’ve been diagnosed with a medical condition or needed medical treatment that put you at risk of infertility such as chemotherapy, you may have chosen to bank sperm samples, or store eggs or embryos to safeguard the possibility of being a parent in the future.

Sadly, failure of storage freezer systems, poor administration, or even deliberate malicious acts may have led to your precious samples being damaged beyond use or destroyed, dashing your hopes of starting a family.

While thankfully these incidents are relatively rare, we are one of the few solicitors with the expertise and experience to deal with this complex, unique and particularly devastating type of medical negligence. We can help you claim compensation for a wide range of fertility negligence issues relating to IVF/ICSI and Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority regulation.

Testicular torsion

Testicular torsion is a medical emergency, usually with rapid onset. It requires immediate surgery, which, if performed within a few hours from onset, can salvage a testicle. Unfortunately, this condition can be misdiagnosed as an infection or clinical professionals can fail to recognise it as a medical problem – and the resulting delay in treatment or diagnosis can compromise fertility.

If you have experienced a delayed or missed diagnosis of testicular torsion which has impacted your fertility, our specialist solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.
