The medical negligence team at Gregory Abrams Davidson have extensive experience in assisting women bring a successful claim in respect of gynaecological negligence.


A successful claim can be brought in respect of either:

Examples of our work include:

  • Misdiagnosis of gynaecological cancer

  • Injury caused during a Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
  • Injury caused during the insertion of a contraceptive coil

Injury caused by incompetent gynaecological care can be devastating and can have a huge impact on the quality of a woman’s life. Examples of injuries we have witnessed include:

  • Infection
  • Infertility
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Unnecessary procedures
