Obstetrical & Gynecological Malpractice

Infants are not the only victims of medical negligence involving pre-natal care or childbirth. Mothers can suffer trauma too, from C-section complications to severe uterine rupture or death. And women can suffer other catastrophic injuries from negligent Ob/Gyn care, whether involving the improper use of hormone replacement therapy, treatment or surgical errors related to urinary tract or reproductive organ problems, or sexual dysfunction issues. In these and many other instances, WMK lawyers understand the unique medical issues involved and are skilled at demonstrating that injury resulted from improper or negligent care.
