Helping You Recover for OB-GYN Errors in New Jersey

Our lawyer-doctor represents women injured by negligent obstetricians and gynecologists

Since 1976, Seigel Law has represented women who have received substandard gynecological and obstetrical care in our communities of Ridgewood, Hackensack, Fair Lawn, Teaneck, Garfield, Fort Lee, Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth and Clifton. We handle medical malpractice cases against all parties who commit serious errors that harm a woman’s health — including obstetricians, gynecologists, midwives, nurses, nurse practitioners, lab technicians, women’s clinics and hospitals.

We provide compassionate representation if you were harmed by a birth injury, misdiagnosis of cancer, infection or other condition because of the mistakes made by ob-gyn professionals or facilities. Our lawyers recognize that many of these problems could be avoided if doctors listen to their patients and treat them with respect. At our firm, you can expect to always have your questions thoughtfully answered and your concerns taken seriously by our dedicated attorneys and staff.

Common mistakes made by obstetricians

The American Medical Association’s publication American Medical News released data from a 2011 study that analyzed the claims of more than 800 obstetrician medical liability lawsuits taken from a database of 120,000 claims. The authors made the following conclusions about the top complaints against obstetricians:

  • Clinical judgment error was cited in 77 percent of the cases.
  • Miscommunication was cited in 36 percent of the cases.
  • Technical error was cited in 26 percent of the cases.
  • Inadequate documentation was regularly mentioned.
  • Administrative failures were regularly mentioned.
  • Ineffective supervision was regularly mentioned.

In addition, the authors found that the most common allegations were that the obstetrician:

  • Delayed treatment of fetal distress
  • Improperly executed vaginal delivery
  • Improperly managed the pregnancy

Permanent injuries resulting from serious OB-GYN mistakes

The damages you incurred because of an ob-gyn error can last a lifetime and can severely interfere with your health and quality of life. Our team helps you recover the compensation you deserve for such devastating issues as:

    After the misfortune of suffering an injury, I had the good fortune to choose Seigel Law to represent me. During my initial meeting with Jan Seigel, I found him to be extremely confident and reassuring---he totally put me at ease. I was represented by Mark Mc Bratney---an EXCELLENT attorney. He was supportive and professional through the entire process, and provided an excellent outcome for my case.
