Massachusetts Obstetrician Malpractice Claims: 617-566-2700

We advise women about their legal rights in relation to medical negligence in pregnancy, childbirth, diagnosis and treatment of malignancy, and other gynecological or obstetric problems:

  • Obstetric fistula and resulting incontinence or sexual dysfunction
  • Failure to diagnose or treat sexually transmitted diseases
  • Misdiagnosis of endometriosis
  • Negligent treatment of uterine or ovarian fibroids, cysts or tumors
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Negligent treatment of fertility disorders
  • Undiagnosed or misdiagnosed ectopic pregnancy

The successful presentation of medical malpractice claims against a gynecologist, obstetrician or OB/GYN depends on the support of doctors with qualifications and certifications similar to those of the defendant physicians. The ultimate question is: Did the patient’s injury result from an error of the kind that a reasonably careful practitioner would have known not to commit?

Issues of professional negligence typically depend on expert opinion evidence based on a careful review of the medical records. Our law firm’s ability to develop this evidence through close interaction with medical experts can represent a significant advantage toward establishing your right to damages.

Clients of the firm value our lawyers’ ability to establish and strengthen lasting personal relationships with them.
