ATTORNEYS representing Medcorp Ltd chairman Dr Kongsheik Achong Low are expected to appeal the decision of High Court judge Ricky Rahim, the Express has learned.
On Thursday, Rahim handed down a 67-page judgment in which he found Achong Low negligent in the death of 36-year-old Karen Lezama at the Stanley's Clinic on April 6, 2003.
Lezama, a mother of three, bled to death hours after she had a stillbirth.
Achong Low was also ordered to pay legal costs and compensation to Lezama's estate.
Compensation is to be assessed and costs are to be quantified by a Master on a date to be fixed by the court office.
Achong Low is a specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist and the chairman of Medcorp Limited.
Medcorp Limited owns St Clair Medical, the Brian Lara Treatment Centre, Goodhealth Medical Centre and Caribbean Heart Care.
Rahim ruled that Achong Low was negligent by "failing to take urgent and immediate or any reasonable steps to stop the haemorrhage once it had started".
Achong Low was also negligent by "failing to administer sufficient medication to stop the bleeding", Rahim ruled.
Achong Low was also negligent by "failing to exercise all due care and diligence in the treatment of the deceased in all circumstances of the case", Rahim ruled.
Achong Low's attorneys have 45 days to appeal the matter.
