The Abu Dhabi Court for Family and Civil and Administrative Claims obligated an airline company to pay Dhs50,000 to an air hostess in compensation for the material and moral damages she sustained after she was injured while she was working on one of the company’s planes.
Details date back to an earlier time when the hostess filed a lawsuit demanding that the company she worked for pay her Dhs200,000 in compensation for the material and moral damages she suffered and obligating the company to pay the fees and expenses of the lawsuit.
The hostess indicated that while she was on the plane one of the crew members hit on her shoulder while he was pushing one of the food carts, causing a permanent disability of 25% in the upper left limb.
She attached with her claim the report of the hospital where she was treated, the report of the forensic lab of the Judicial Department, and the report of the medical centre of the company.
The company's lawyer said it was not right for the court to consider the case because it has already been looked into and that the court is not competent.
The court affirmed that the previous verdict refusing the compensation lawsuit was because the hostess did not pay the fees at that time, and that she filed her lawsuit according to the general rules and not according to the labour law.
The court indicated that the case papers affirmed the hostess suffered from shoulder tendonitis, subacromial bursitis and tendinitis of the muscle, and that the forensic report proved permanent disability of 25% in the upper left limb.
The court also pointed out that the person who caused the injuries worked for the airline, and that the hostess deserved financial compensation as a result of the impact of the injuries on her life, ability to work and her feelings.
The Abu Dhabi Appellate Court upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance obligating a woman and an insurance company to pay a sales representative Dhs100,000, in compensation for the damages he incurred.
The husband affirmed that the wife's lawsuit is malicious and had no right to request large compensation, stressing that she aimed to obtain a divorce for harm.
The details date back to an earlier time, when a controversy occurred between the appellant and the driver of a vehicle after they left a nightclub. When the driver drove the vehicle, the appellant fell from it, to have injuries upon which he was hospitalized.
The Abu Dhabi Court for Family and Civil and Administrative Cases ordered a woman to pay another Dhs131,000, her share in the inheritance of a deceased person and obligated her to pay the fees and expenses of the lawsuit filed by the appellant.
