Family of woman who died in childbirth allowed to seek claims

THE husband and daughter of a teacher who died in 2007 while delivering her son, will have their day in court to seek dependency claims from her obstetrician and Thomson Medical Centre (TMC). This was allowed although their suit was filed past the three-year statutory limitation period.

The Court of Appeal yesterday ruled that father and daughter should be allowed to pursue their claims, overturning a lower court decision, which had struck out their claims on the grounds that they were time-barred from suing.
