Gynecological Malpractice

The female reproductive system is complex, and doctors who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology (obstetricians, gynecologists and OB/GYNs) must complete years of study. Knowing that these doctors have special knowledge, women trust them with their most intimate health issues — including pregnancy, child birth and disorders of the reproductive system.


In turn OB/GYN errors affect matters that affect women most intimately. This is one of the reasons that gynecological malpractice can have such devastating results. At Friedman, Domiano & Smith, we hold gynecologists accountable for this harm by handling a broad spectrum of gynecological malpractice cases:

  • Failure to detect sexually transmitted diseases
  • Failure to follow up on irregular pap test screenings
  • Failure to quickly diagnose and treat fibroids, cervical and uterine cancers
  • Failure to effectively treat endometriosis
  • Post-hysterectomy surgical errors
  • Infertility malpractice
  • Failure to properly handle high risk pregnancies
  • Doctors’ errors leading to miscarriage/still birth
  • Doctors’ errors leading to fistula and incontinency
  • Failure to correctly perform an episiotomy, leading to injury of the mother
  • Doctors’ errors resulting in a premature deliveries
  • Malpractice during labor and delivery
  • Failure to perform a needed C-section
  • Birth injuries
