Proving Medical Malpractice after a Hysterectomy

Although you may not have obtained the desired results after a hysterectomy, it does not necessarily mean that it was caused by malpractice.

In order to win a malpractice case against your gynecologist or other medical professionals involved in your procedure, the first thing you will need to do is prove that your doctor did not render the same diligence or quality of care that a similarly trained and competent gynecologist may have rendered or provided under the same circumstances.

You will need to find an expert medical witness experienced in performing hysterectomies to testify what the proper standard of care was and whether that standard was maintained by your gynecology.

The second thing that you will need to prove is that your gynecologist did not only fail to maintain the medical standard of care, but that you suffered bladder damage as a direct result of the substandard decisions and actions of your gynecologist while performing your surgery.

It will be difficult to prove in the eyes of the law that the bladder damage you suffered was caused by malpractice on your gynecologist’s part. Malpractice is obvious in very few situations, such as leaving a surgical instrument in the patient.

However, with the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney and medical experts, you may be able to prove medical negligence and win your case. Keep in mind that you will need to have all medical records and other evidence in place to present before the court.
