However, the insurance company claimed that Vinu Abraham was also involved in the accident. It was alleged that the occupant of the vehicle was getting out of his vehicle to witness another accident and this was the cause of the accident. But the court did not accept these matters. The Insurance Authority had found that the driver of the oncoming vehicle was at fault and in this case Vinu was entitled to compensation. The court accepted the medico forensic report submitted by Vinu’s lawyer and the details of the injuries as evidence. The authority ruled that the insurance company should pay two million dirhams and nine per cent legal benefit until the amount is paid in full.
However, the company appealed to the Dubai Civil Court. The petitioner said that there were no fatal injuries and that he should ask the authority to cancel the two million dirhams awarded as compensation for only five per cent of the injuries. However, the court rejected the company’s argument after Vinu’s lawyer presented strong evidence. The court then ordered him to pay the appropriate compensation and court costs.
