Phuket Woman Sues: A Phuket woman on Thursday filed a lawsuit with the Civil Court against Bangkok Hospital Phuket for Bt19 million in compensation, after an alleged mistake during an operation left her bed-ridden.


Nonglak Srisaeng assigned Chalermpong Klubdee, an official of the Foundation for Consumers, and Sakolrat Ritsamitchai, a lawyer, to file the lawsuit on her behalf.

The lawsuit was filed with the consumers’ case division of the Civil Court.

The lawsuit alleged that a mistake on the part of the hospital caused Nonglak to become bed-ridden after she received an operation to remove a tumor in her uterus in August, 2016.

She is demanding Bt19 million in compensations for the difficulties to live her life and for subsequent medical costs.
