- Dilatation and Curettage (D&C) claims
Injuries can include:

- Failed sterilisation
- Damage during laparoscopic investigations or surgery
- Injury to bladder, bowel or uterus during hysterectomy
- Unnecessary hysterectomy following a caesarean section

Other gynaecological errors
Other injuries can arise from different types of gynaecological treatment, including contraceptive procedures, termination of pregnancy and surgery.
Side-effects relating to injected hormone contraceptives may also occur - and where contraceptive devices are fitted or termination occurs, there may be perforation of internal organs.
In some cases failure to diagnose certain conditions, such as cervical cancer, can have tragic consequences.
