Obstetricians—or OB-GYNs—play a vital role in making sure mother and child remain healthy during pregnancy throughout labor and delivery. When your obstetrician makes a mistake in responding to a complication or otherwise fails to provide adequate care, the health of both you and your infant are jeopardized. Pursuing your right to compensation for those mistakes can give you the financial resources to get the best treatment available while holding the negligent obstetrician accountable.

Our obstetrician malpractice lawyers pursue compensation from OB-GYNs whose medical negligence causes patients to suffer harm. Obstetrician malpractice can come in the form of an overt action or failure to take an action or respond appropriately to complications during the course of pregnancy, labor or delivery. Examples of actions or omissions that can constitute obstetrician malpractice include:
$5.6 Million Verdict
Team Law’s client fell and dislocated her knee, causing an injury to the popliteal artery that ultimately resulted in the amputation of her leg. Suit was filed against the hospital to which she had been taken by ambulance, the emergency room doctor, a radiologist and an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon claimed he was inordinately delayed getting to the hospital because of traffic problems on the Garden State Parkway. Team Law was able to counter the surgeon’s testimony by obtaining records from the Garden State Parkway that showed no traffic problems and by obtaining the surgeon’s EZ Pass records. The claim against the emergency room doctor was that he should have asked for vascular consultation when he detected a weak pulse in the foot, not just an orthopedic consult. The claim against the radiologist was that his actions also delayed treatment. After a seven week trial, a verdict was entered in favor of Team Law’s client and against all four of those defendants.
Complications routinely arise during pregnancy, labor and delivery–and not every bad outcome is malpractice. However, it is the obstetrician’s responsibility to skillfully and appropriately respond to the situation to prevent harm where possible. Failure to adhere to the appropriate medical standard of care can produce catastrophic results for the infant and mother—some of which can even result in wrongful death.

Obstetrician malpractice can take place during pregnancy, during labor and delivery or even in the weeks following your child’s birth. In every case, it is the obstetrician’s duty to properly monitor both mother and child to identify any potential complications as quickly as possible—and to skillfully respond in providing proper medical care. Failure to do so may be actionable obstetrician malpractice under New Jersey medical malpractice law, and can lead to the following types of injuries:

In some cases, the mistake may be obvious. However, in most cases, the parents are left wondering whether what went wrong was really an accepted medical risk. Our lawyers have been handling these types of cases for decades—and we know what types of questions to ask. Importantly, we examine your medical records and speak with nurses and other medical professionals who helped with your care. We also work with medical experts who can provide answers about what specifically happened to cause the harm. We also get answers about what your obstetrician should have done to prevent that harm and keep your family safe.
Most obstetricians don’t set out to cause any type of harm. Like any other type of mistake, obstetrician malpractice is usually caused by carelessness. Failure to order the appropriate tests or failure to take the time to carefully evaluate test results can lead to a catastrophic mistake. In other cases, the obstetrician might respond to a complication too late or respond to an emergency by providing the wrong type of care. Although these mistakes are not intentional, obstetricians are a type of doctor who have chosen to specialize in a particular field—and you have the right to expect a certain degree of expertise when under their care.
