Lawsuits related to health services are increasingly common, especially in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. Maternal mortality and morbidity are often thought to be the result of medical negligence. Therefore, it is important for clinicians to know the potential lawsuits that may occur in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. Lawsuits in the field of obstetrics and gynecology are often caused by misunderstandings due to unclear and incomplete informed consent. Therefore, to prevent such lawsuits, clinicians must develop clear, directed, effective, flexible, and empathetic communication, especially in conveying medical information to patients and families. Documentation of consent for action and patient progress during treatment is also required to prove medical negligence in the event of a lawsuit.
