Early this week, our medical negligence team comprising Palaniappan Sundararaj, Lim Min and Ranita Yogeeswaran successfully concluded a medical negligence litigation on liability in the High Court. The claimants, both mother and her child, obtained interlocutory judgment against an obstetrician & gynaecologist, and a private hospital. The case involved a claim for compensation on behalf of a toddler who suffered serious brain injuries during delivery. The mother, too, suffered injury during labour. The High Court will determine the quantum of damages payable to the mother and child during the forthcoming assessment hearing.
