  • Failure to perform hysterectomy correctly leading to injury to bladder, bowels or ureters
  • Perforation of the uterus due to negligent insertion of intrauterine contraceptive devices and during abortion procedures

  • Incontinence following surgery
  • Delayed diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy and genital cancer

Am I eligible for Gynaecology Claims?

Every case of negligence is unique, and it can be complex to determine whether or not you have a valid compensation claim for Gynaecology negligence.

Firstly, you must be able to demonstrate that:

  1. The gynaecology medical professional you are claiming was negligent owed you a duty of care
  2. Based on what a reasonably experience professional would have done, negligent behaviour has taken place
  3. The medical professional’s negligence has caused you pain and suffering

In order to do this, you will have to collect and document as much evidence as possible, such as medical records and reports. Our Gynaecology Negligence Solicitors can help you gather evidence and ensure it is documented correctly, in order to build the strongest possible Gynaecology Claims possible.

You may also be subject to time limits to make your claim. The general rule states that you must start your Gynaecology Claims within 3 years from the incident or negligent behaviour, although exceptions may apply. These include cases involving minors, those lacking mental capacity, and injuries that only become apparent at a later date.

If you are unsure about the validity of your compensation claim, contact Lanyon Bowdler’s Gynaecology Negligence Solicitors today.


How much compensation can I get for Gynaecology Claims?

Calculating the value of your Gynaecology Compensation Claim can be complex, and should be done by legal professionals who are experts in the field of medical negligence. Many factors will influence your total compensation payout, especially in cases involving the female reproductive system. A younger person with no children will generally be able to claim a higher amount of compensation for being involuntarily made sterile compared to someone who is older or already has children.

The Judicial College Guidelines have been put in place to give a general estimate and range for different types of injuries and medical negligence accidents. The amounts quoted in the Guidelines only refer to what is known as “General Damages”, which are designed to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by the negligence of a medical professional.

The ranges in the Guidelines regarding infertility as a result of medical negligence are as follows.

  • Infertility caused by medical complications: £75,500 - £111,000
  • Infertility caused to someone who has children: £11,800 - £24,100
  • Infertility caused to an older lady: £4,350 - £8,250

It should be considered that injuries related to gynaecological treatments can often extend to the digestive system, bladder, kidney, and other organs. This may impact your total compensation amount.

Additional compensation will be calculated as part of your “Special Damages”, which are meant to reimburse expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury. These may include:

  • Specialist medical treatment
  • Cost of care for long-term conditions
  • Loss of income
  • Time off work
  • Travel expenses
  • Adaptation to your home or vehicle

These can vary greatly across different cases, and should be calculated carefully based on evidence of any financial losses - past and predicted for the future.

Our specialist Gynaecology Negligence Solicitors can help you document every loss you have incurred, and calculate how much compensation you may be entitled to. Contact Lanyon Bowdler today to talk to our team.
