Recovery for Gynecologist and Obstetrician Mistakes

The excitement of having a baby can soon give rise to fear, anger and pain if the delivery unnecessarily caused injuries to your body. You may feel like you are the only one because injuries to mothers are not widely reported in the media, despite being shockingly common.

But, you are not alone. Brais Law Firm is by your side, demanding compensation from the doctors who injured you. Our law firm has a proven track record of success, with firm wide recoveries equal to more than $21 million in 2014 alone and many more millions both before and after 2014 *. Our partners have fought for patients’ rights for a combined 75 years. We invite you to review our Results page for more information.

We are available to help you through the difficult aftermath of an OBGYN mistake. Your consultation is free and confidential. Our supportive staff and attorneys show you the compassion, privacy and respect you deserve from your legal counselors.

Pregnancy-Related Mortality

The United States is one of the richest countries in the world and yet, alarmingly, pregnancy-related mortality has increased dramatically since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began collecting data in 1987. The rate of maternity deaths rose from 7.2 per 100,000 live births in 1987 to 17.8 deaths per 100,000 in 2011.

Preventable factors in the high mortality rate include:

  • Untreated medical conditions, such as cardiovascular disease
  • Infections, most notably sepsis
  • Uncontrolled hemorrhage
  • Undetected blood clot
  • Undiagnosed preeclampsia
  • Stroke due to complication in pregnancy
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Amniotic fluid embolism
  • Anesthesia complications

Maternal Injuries During Delivery

Childbirth should be a joyful experience but women who have been severely injured may also suffer from a lifetime of pain, disability and medical problems as a result of giving birth. Women face risks in both vaginal and Cesarean deliveries, and when doctors fail to order a C-section when vaginal delivery is inappropriate.

A negligent delivery may cause such devastating injuries as:

  • Rectovaginal fistula
  • Vaginal tearing
  • Perineal tearing
  • Serious infection
  • Epidural spinal injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Placental abruption
  • Postpartum depression

Damages Caused by an OBGYN Mistake

An obstetric-gynecology mistake can result in devastating permanent injuries. Our lawyers pursue the maximum damages from the hospital, midwife, registered nurse practitioner, OBGYN, anesthesiologist or other medical professional or institution that caused such damages as:

  • Disability
  • Inability to work
  • Incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

We also represent loved ones of women who died during childbirth or because of any complication arising from medical negligence.
