A woman filed a lawsuit against a women’s salon in which she requested the court to obligate the salon to pay her Dhs100,000 in compensation for the burns she sustained by mistake when her nails were trimmed and decorated with acrylic. She said this substance was left on her fingers for a long period and consequently caused finger burns of second and third degrees.
She indicated in her lawsuit that she had traveled abroad for medical treatment and submitted copies of related reports to the court. The Court of First Instance ruled that the salon be obligated to pay her Dhs20,000 as well as the lawsuit charges.
The salon appealed against the verdict, pleading that it was based on a non-final judgment and that the medical reports submitted by the woman had not been approved and attested by the official authorities.
Furthermore, the reports had been issued by a dentist, who had nothing to do with chemical issues and this would call into question the credibility of the verdict, the salon said.
In the first court session, the woman demanded the compensation to be increased in light of the moral harm she sustained including lack of sleep, severe pain and inability to do the simplest work without assistance, not to mention the psychological fatigue from visiting lawyers and the Public Prosecution, long investigations and medical treatment costs, which ranged between Dhs20,000 and Dhs30,000.
The woman said in a memo that one of the salon workers had admitted responsibility in a number of letters and that the centre, which issued the attached medical reports, was a comprehensive medical centre but owned by a dentist. She asked the court to give her a deadline to attest the reports.
The court ruled not to accept the salon’s appeal and obligated it to pay the expenses, noting that the appeal was filed outside its 15-day deadline and the salon failed to deposit fees for the appeal, which is an inevitable procedure.
The case dated back to a lawsuit that the patient filed against a hospital and a doctor in which she requested the court to obligate them to pay Dhs7m plus delayed interest at 12%.
The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal upheld a ruling of the Court of First Instance that obligated a company to pay the wife of a worker and his three children Dhs200,000 in compensation, in addition to obligating it to pay all heirs Dhs120,000 distributed equally among them as moral compensation after the loss of their sole breadwinner.
The Abu Dhabi Appellate Court upheld the ruling of the Court of First Instance rejecting a patient’s lawsuit against two doctors and a hospital.
The Abu Dhabi Court of Cassation upheld a ruling issued by the Court of First Instance obligating a company dealing in concrete work, two of its employees and an insurance company to pay Dhs700,000 to a woman and her three children in compensation for the death of her husband.
