The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal obligated a farmer’s employer to pay him Dhs85,000 in compensation for the damage he incurred after he fell from a crane.
The farmer allegedly filed a lawsuit before the Abu Dhabi Court for Family and Civil and Administrative Cases, demanding that his employer pay him Dhs120,000, in compensation for the damages he incurred, in addition to the legal interest, fees and expenses.
The farmer indicated that during his work he wanted to move a tree but he lost his balance and fell from a crane, due to the negligence and lack of precaution of his employer and the failure to provide security and safety means to protect workers from work risks, which caused him to suffer fractures in different parts of his body, constituting a permanent disability with a disability rate of 35%.
The worker added that the criminal court convicted the employer and fined them Dhs5,000.
The employer's lawyer also demanded the inclusion of an insurance company in the case.
The Court of First Instance obligated the employer to pay the worker Dhs70,000 in compensation for the material and moral damages he incurred, and obligated the insurance company to pay the employer what it will pay to the worker from the amount of compensation in addition to obliging the employer and the insurance company to pay fees and expenses.
The farmer and the insurance company appealed the verdict, and the farmer indicated that the verdict did not compensate him for limited movement, difficulty in running and jumping, and the inability to work skillfully and flexibly, while the insurance company demanded that the subsidiary guarantee claim not be accepted.
The Court of Appeal made the amount of compensation to be paid by the employer to the worker is Dhs85,000, with a delay interest of 4% annually from the date of issuance of the ruling, in addition to the expenses of the lawsuit.
The court rejected the lawsuit against the insurance company.
