"We'll give family one million baht" for death of Canadian tourist says owner

Recommended Posts

Don't be confused Thaiwrath......it's called reading the small print. Like, when people jump into pools where it says "no diving". Called negligence and so all cover is cancelled. In this case, if he weighed more than the weight limit and they let him on, they crossed the line, became negligent and all cover is cancelled. There are rues for the Insured and the Insurer. It just tends to be that the insured can't be bothered to read the rules and then whinges when a penalty is awarded against them. Hope this clarifies.

Big deal! Thai think 1 million baht is 1 million USD?

Last year, two East Indian brothers were murdered around the corner from Central World, and their family only received 1 million baht as well.

That amount is nothing. Im guessing with hospital fees and to fly body home will cost that. They should pay fir average earnings lost until 65.     2 or 3 million Canadian dollars. 1m baht.... thais would grab that. Jail the owners not wa wa wa get let off. In this country do nothing like that at all so called adventure sports.

I'm sure the family must have meant 10,000,000 baht, but that wouldn't be enough either!!!

pathetic.

 

 

Why? It's a lot of money to a Thai. Seems fair enough to me. Thailand is not the US (Thank goodness)

A little over 30k USD for blood money.  In the US the civil courts would award a couple of million USD and multiples more for punitive damages. 

That is why life here in Thailand is cheap. Facilities are cheap. Life is also cheap. That is the way it is.

Please... get over this ‘most Thai’s earn xxx (minimum wage) a month”... 

 

Its total BS... that’s why the factories & building sites are full of Burmese labourers... the Thai’s won’t work for that...

 

But even worse.. the deceased is not let Thai’s. He was engaging in a pursuit advertised towards foreigners.

 

Most of your hypothetical Thai’s earring $300 (B9,525) per month couldn’t afford the zip ride!

Many Thai attractions charge non-Thais 10x what Thais pay.

 

So in like kind they should pay non-Thais 10x what they pay Thais for the accident.

Zip line company charges both Thai and foreigner the same price.

folks enjoy the money purchasing power... and cultural differences Thailand offers up, but if it is to compensate them for a risk they THEMSELVES quite consciously undertook.... suddenly all of that is off the table and western prices and western culture apply? I think most of us can see the message should be..... Thailand is Thailand. One million THB is a lot of money for normal Thai folk, and this is Thailand.
