Here is a word for the wise from our experienced medical malpractice attorneys to women seeking advice on how to prevent injury, illness or even fatal outcomes in the context of obstetric, gynecological or any medical treatment:

Before any major operation, get a second opinion. There may be less risky and less invasive solutions available to your gynecological problems. Learn as much as you can about your illness. Be proactive when you talk to your OB/GYN doctor about your condition. Take a list of questions with you to each appointment and do not be satisfied until your questions have been adequately addressed. Take steps to find out whatever you can about your doctor’s background before allowing him or her to operate on you.

Contact The Epstein Law Firm in New Jersey regarding unfortunate outcomes of OB/GYN care such as loss of reproductive ability, birth of a severely disabled baby, or a serious birth injury to your child (such as cerebral palsy).

When our attorneys investigate OB/GYN cases, we often discover that doctors’ documents have been altered or are missing. For this reason, the earlier we are brought into an investigation, the more likely it is that we will find the information necessary to bring a claim for compensation for a victim of gynecological negligence. Did your OB/GYN practitioner fail to adhere to an accepted standard of care when you underwent a tubal ligation? You have a right to expect an acceptable level of care from your obstetrician, gynecologist, or other medical professional – and we are here to help if you don’t.

You may have a case, even if you are uncertain about it. Contact us at our New Jersey law offices to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced attorney.
