October 4, 2017, 9:09 am

The Court of Appeals ordered a private hospital to pay compensation worth KD 10,000 to a Kuwaiti woman for a medical error. Lawyer Mubarak Al-Khashab filed the lawsuit against the hospital on the behalf of the citizen.

He requested Court of First Instance for temporary compensation worth KD 5,001, which the court approved. He also asked the court to order the hospital and the insurance company to pay KD 10,000 as compensation. However, the court decided on a compensation of KD 2,000 for the physical damages incurred by her and an additional KD 2,000 for the mental damages she sustained. However, Lawyer Al-Khashab filed an appeal against this verdict, demanding for compensation worth KD 10,000.
