Gynecological Error Legal Help Since 1950
Medical malpractice related to gynecology brings grave health risks including sterility, cancer misdiagnosis, incontinence, miscarriages and catastrophic birth injuries and wrongful death. At the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld LLP, we have successfully handled many different types of medical malpractice cases involving gynecological and Ob-Gyn errors, including:
- Failure to diagnose breast, uterine, ovarian and cervical cancer
- Failure to diagnose fetal distress
- Surgical errors, including perforation of the uterus and colon
- Failure to effectively sterilize
- Failure to diagnose gestational diabetes and preeclampsia
- Failure to diagnose pre-natal conditions;
- Failure to properly and safely remove uterine fibroids
- Unnecessary C-sections and hysterectomies
- Failure to perform a C-section or hysterectomy
- Errors in analyzing mammograms, pap smears, sonograms and tissue cultures
- Numerous other gynecological errors
We have also handled cases involving failed tubal ligations whereby the patient soon became pregnant because her gynecologist failed to completely cauterize and close a fallopian tube, necessitating an abortion. In one recent case we recovered $250,000 for our client at trial. In another case we recovered $750,000.

Recent High-Value Cases Illustrate Our Effectiveness in Handling Gynecological Injury Cases
- Our pregnant client did not receive HIV testing by her gynecologist despite her high-risk status regarding the disease. Her HIV-positive status was therefore not timely diagnosed, and her child did not receive HIV treatment in utero, which may have cured the disease. Our representation resulted in total guaranteed payments of $2,204,028.
- Our client’s wife went to her gynecologist for pelvic pain. The gynecologist performed an exploratory abdominal/pelvic surgery (sometimes referred to as an open laparotomy). The gynecologist, however, failed to treat abdominal adhesions and did not call in an expert. The patient the developed a mechanical bowel obstruction, which the gynecologist failed to diagnose and treat. Our client’s wife died, and we obtained a verdict of almost $2 million for her husband and son.
