In the US? lawsuit. In India? I don’t know

without comments

I can’t imagine the level of lawsuit this would bring in the US, but I’m sure it would be impressive.

Dr Merchant said that the 30-year-old mother of the child – who was seven months pregnant – suffered life threatening convulsions and high blood pressure over the weekend, which required powerful medicines.
He said that that the doctors believed that the baby – who was limp at birth – had no heart beat and no pulse.
She was given a death certificate on Tuesday morning and two hours later her body was handed over to her parents.
But later, when the effect of medicines wore off, Dr Merchant said that the baby “showed attempts to breathe”.
“Under such circumstances, it would appear that doctors had no reason to assume that the baby was dead,” he said. “There is on the face of it a case of negligence to be answered.”
