Ectopic Pregnancy Misdiagnosis Claims

An ectopic pregnancy is when the baby develops outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. If not diagnosed and treated quickly, this type of pregnancy can have serious consequences and even have an impact on a woman’s chances of getting pregnant in the future. Therefore, if you have been misdiagnosed, you could have a claim for compensation.

Have You Suffered from Ectopic-Related Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence could have occurred if:
  • A medical professional misdiagnosed the ectopic pregnancy
  • There was a failure to undertake any tests for ectopic pregnancy
  • There was a failure or delay in treatment, including the prescribing of ‘methotrexate’, which prevents the egg developing in the fallopian tube
  • After a routine scan was performed which did not show the baby in the womb, no additional tests were carried out
  • There was surgical error when removing a fallopian tube
  • There was a failure to remove the pregnancy or it is incomplete
  • There was a failure to monitor recovery post treatment
If you have been victim of medical negligence during or after an ectopic pregnancy, you could claim for the following:
  • Injury or loss suffered
  • Loss of earnings
  • Cost of medical treatment
  • Cost of therapy
  • Cost of travel or other expenses
  • Legal costs incurred
The failure to diagnose or treat an ectopic pregnancy can cause both physical and mental suffering. We can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Following negations with the defendant, Mr X was offered £250,000 gross of the interim payments of £52,009 to settle the claim. Mr X accepted this offer and was very thankful for our assistance with his claim.
Absolutely amazing service, I had an accident back in 2016 and they fought tooth and nail to get me the treatment and pay out that I deserved, my case handler Amy kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Howells to anyone.

Stuart Marks
I recently used Howells' for a claim. After an initial telephone conversation, Amy (our assigned representative) went through the process of our potential claim. She outlined time frames and the strength of our case. We ended up receiving compensation above our expectations. I was thoroughly impressed the team from Howells and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They handled the whole process in a manner which inspired confidence, knowing that we were in good hands.

Case Study: Failure to Diagnose Ectopic Pregnancy

S v Betsi Cadwaladwr University Health Board

This claim arose out of a failure to diagnose ectopic pregnancy, as a result of a delay in performing required blood tests. Consequently, the patient collapsed and suffered extensive haemorrhaging requiring multiple blood transfusions and surgery to remove one fallopian tube (Salpingectomy / Salpingo-oophorectomy).

Fortunately, the claimant’s fertility was not impacted; however, damages were still awarded in the region of £15,000.00 for the pain and suffering caused.
