Family of Victim Awarded €2.5 million after Child Birth Death

Comments None

The High Court has awarded the family of a woman who died shortly after childbirth in the National Maternity Hospital almost €2.5 million for medical negligence.

The High Court heard that in November 2004 Taz Kenefick (36) was admitted to give birth to her second son but she developed an infection during labour and despite efforts from her obstetric consultant she died from internal bleeding after giving birth.

Her husband Kevin made the compensation claim on behalf of his deceased wife and Mr Justice Iarfhlaith O’Neill heard that liability had been admitted by the hospital two weeks ago.
