We are Pennsylvania Attorneys who Understand OB/GYN Cases:
The female anatomy has been the topic of more than just a few books. Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) have a legal duty to understand a wide variety of women health issues and not perform procedures or give medical advice unless it is done so in accordance with the appropriate medical standard of care.
What we, the medical malpractice attorneys at FLAHERTY FARDO, have experienced is that some, and we stress, some Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) doctors do not have the same attention for detail as others.
To some doctors, it is simply a ‘job’, and they treat the patients as though they are a number or a ‘means to an end’ rather than a patient.
What has surprised us most, is the number of Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) that will make important health related decisions for women, about their bodies and their health, without letting the patient participate in that very important decision making process.
We have tried several cases involving Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) where women have had enormous medical decisions made without any discussion between the doctor and patient, including most commonly hysterectomies. It is unconscionable that a physician would remove a women’s uterus in a non-emergent situation without a full discussion and consent from the patient first.
On the other hand, we have had clients who adore their Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN). More than any other medical specialty, we believe Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) have the greatest difference or spectrum among their bedside manners.
The unfortunate reality is that thousands of women all across the United States are injured every year by the medical negligence of their obstetrician / gynecologist. As a direct result, these women may experience permanent unreasonable scars, illness, injury or even death. In addition, there are often serious emotional scars.
If you have legal questions about a women’s health related matter, let the medical malpractice attorneys of FLAHERTY FARDO, and our physicians review your case for free (412.802.6666).
Understanding injuries as a result of a D&C (Dilation and Curettage):
Our medical malpractice attorneys have extensive experience in settling cases and in trying cases related to a common procedure known as a D&C (dilation and curettage). D&C is a procedure which involves scrapping the uterus lining and can be used for a variety of purposes, including removal of fibroids, the relief of excessive uterine bleeding and the removal of tissue after a miscarriage.
D&C is a common, yet sensitive procedure and many women are injured as a result of it.
We have had clients whose uterus and bowel were perforated because the Obstetrician / Gynecologists (OB/GYN) were simply to aggressive and/or rough during the procedure. There are risks to any procedure, and in this, perforations to the uterus and/or bowel are a known risk. However, that does not mean that doctors can avoid their requirement to uphold the appropriate medical standard of care.
If you or loved has been injured through a D&C (dilation and curettage) rely on our experience as medical malpractice attorneys knowledgeable in this area of medicine to help obtain answers and compensation.
The Advantage of Having Physicians on Retainer:
FLAHERTY FARDO, LLC has a distinct advantage over many other law firms by having immediate and unfettered access to board certified physicians to review cases and to help with the prosecution of medical malpractice actions when negligence exists. Combining the trial experience of our law firm, with the expertise of our physicians, we believe gives us the greatest opportunity to maximize monetary recovery for our injured clients.
Pennsylvania Requires ‘The Certificate of Merit’:
In 2003, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court approved a new rule requiring attorneys to obtain a “certificate of merit” from a medical professional establishing that the medical work in the case fell outside acceptable standards within the medical community. A lawyer failing to obtain the certificate cannot bring a case to trial. Therefore, it is imperative that medical malpractice claims are investigated by competent attorneys who have immediate access to a variety of physicians for review.
