Nurse in horrific accident - teacher driver bargains refusing to pay family demands for compensation

TNA reported on the case of the 23 year old Bua Lamphu Hospital nurse who was hit by a car while waiting on her motorcycle at the lights at an intersection on February 6th. She was going home after working in the hospital.

 

In horrific footage Praew was thrown ten meters by the car that TV presenters said made no attempt to brake.

 

Patchanok Phoinork or Praew, 23, ended up in a serious condition in her own ER room and had to have her spleen removed. Most people who saw the footage believed she was incredibly luck not to be killed.

 

The car was driven by Sri Bun Reuang teacher Wannaphasorn Lakun, 38.

 

The teacher and Praew's mother Kusuma Tonchaiphum, 47, met for the third time yesterday to sort out compensation. But no agreement was reached.

 

Police subsequently charged Wannaphasorn with negligent driving causing grievous injury. The case will be considered by the public prosecutor by Friday.

 

Yesterday after a three hour meeting the mother - who had the help of a free lawyer - told reporters that she wanted 500,000 baht. The teacher had offered 350,000 and a new bike.

 

This, said Kusuma, was not good enough. Her daughter was still suffering from complications and was now not complete after her spleen was taken out.

 

"Who is going to pay in the future if further complications set in?" she asked.

 

She demanded that the teacher pay the compensation request in full and not try to bargain.

hopefully underscores , for all of us, how dangerous it is to be on the roads and streets in thailand given the low level of driving 'skill' here

I just checked my 1st class insurance, 3rd party liability.

500,000 per person

10,000,000 per accident

1m property damage.

 

If someone hasn't got enough insurance they should pay compensation, hopefully the police will enforce it

Horrific stuff. So common here. She was just minding her own business, and waiting at a red light. What on earth was the so called teacher doing? Texting? Talking on the phone? How can one allow themselves to be that distracted, while driving? How can this so called teacher justify the negotiations, when the damage they caused was an extensive as it was? Such a worm. Such a retrograde. Such a subpar individual. Such a loser. Such a monumental screw up. Lucky the gal on the bike was not killed. 

 

I do not mean to cast a negative light on the victim of this accident, but getting on a scooter, or a motorcycle anywhere in Thailand, without a very good helmet, is like playing Russian Roulette with three or four bullets in the chamber. It is absolutely asking for problems. The degree of recklessness here is astounding. And many foreigners come here thinking "how much trouble could I get in on a little scooter, on a tropical island"? Well, the answer is alot. Rider beware. Use as good a helmet as you can afford, and do not use these eggshells pieces of crap. They crack at the first impact, and what lies underneath them? Your skull, which is very delicate. 
 
Just ask yourself- do I have enough problems already, without a broken skull, or smashed head, or face injury, or lost eye? I have two friends who have been in motorbike accidents on Samui within the last two years. One still cannot walk, or talk or function on her own, from a motorbike accident, where she hit her head on the pavement going only 20 kph. The other one has lost alot of his mental capacity after hitting his head. He insisted for years he would never wear a helmet. Now, he seems 15 years older.
