What is Failed Abortion Negligence?
When making the difficult decision to terminate a pregnancy, it is often performed during the first seven weeks. Although most abortion procedures happen without issue, sometimes problems occur, leading to injuries or the abortion being unsuccessful.
The method used to terminate a pregnancy depends on how advanced the pregnancy is. There are medical abortions and surgical abortions which are typically performed under a local anaesthetic.
Failed abortion negligence can include:
- Causing injury to the cervix or uterus
- Failure to detect infection at a follow-up check
- Failure to identify failed abortion or partial abortion
- Lack of informed consent from a patient
- Unwanted birth
Who was responsible?
You can make a claim against anyone who you believe acted negligently towards you during the abortion process. They may be the doctors that consulted with you, the nurses who were responsible for your aftercare and other medical professionals who were directly or indirectly involved. You may also be able to claim against the surgeon who carried out the failed abortion operation.
