UAE: Two boys left disabled in car crash to get Dh165,000 compensation
The driver was found guilty of violating traffic rules.
The father of two children, who were left disabled in a car crash, will receive Dh65,000 in compensation for the damages the boys and the family had suffered, the Abu Dhabi Civil Appeals Court has ruled.
The driver who caused the accident, along with his insurance firm, was ordered to pay the amount, in addition to the Dh100,000 payout that the criminal court had set after he was found guilty of violating traffic rules.
Official court documents show the two boys sustained serious injuries when the car they were travelling in rammed into the reckless driver’s car on one of the roads in Abu Dhabi. The kids suffered leg fractures and other body injuries.
After the criminal court handed the guilty verdict to the driver, the boys’ father decided to file a civil case, demanding compensation for the physical, moral and material damages that his sons had suffered.
Initially, the civil court of first instance had ordered the defendants to pay Dh5,000 but the father challenged the verdict at the civil appeals court, which has raised the compensation payout to Dh65,000.
