Gynecological Errors And Your Legal Options In Ohio
When your gynecologist or obstetrician makes an error, it may not be easy to recognize. It may be a seemingly minor mistake that leads to something like a misdiagnosis of cervical cancer, breast cancer or fetal complications during pregnancy. The misreading of a Pap smear, mammogram, ultrasound or other test can cause you or your child to suffer a serious injury that could be life-altering and potentially fatal.
Certainly, you know your body better than anyone, but conditions like cancer and problems with your reproductive system often do not produce symptoms until the condition has advanced to a severe state. It is your OB-GYN’s job to recognize symptoms, properly read test results, treat conditions according to recognized standards of care, and properly teach mothers about how to care for themselves and their babies before and after childbirth.
