Cash help for tourists hurt in Phuket


Recommended Posts

Now how long will it be before a not so nice farrang team up with low lifes and abuse this system also with fake assault cases....hmmmmm

 

I'm not sure how you'd game the system if the grants are being used to pay for medical services rendered. 
However, I could see the 'rape' scenario being easily gamed, which totally sucks for individuals in real rape cases.  In actual rapes, I think the compensation is really low, but then the potential to game the system is exponentially high.  Tough call.

while Patong Hospital also offered a B1,690 grant.

 

Very generous indeed. Maybe it was just to help him have a meal?

 

It reminds me of  the paltry sum of 5,000 baht given to the badly injured survivors of the Phuket plane crash some years back.

 

Are these people in the real world? Better not to give such an insulting sum.

You serious???

 

Get beaten up....have a few weeks in hospital....have a major organ removed.

And all for the jackpot of 100k and hey don't forget that super generous sum of 1,690.

 

Yep....I'll have a magic time with the 101,690 baht and it'll sure go towards clearing my Thai hospitals bills of a few hundred thousand.

Then I will have my hospital;l bills in my own country and repeated medical visits for how many years?

 

Sounds a good deal to me.

I wouldn't let my dog stay in the state hospitals I've seen in Thailand.

 

Which breed is your dog and from where do you import his food from?

If he gets indigestion, where do you fly him to?

A super lucky fella, your Dog is!

Sometimes we have to seek the 'positive' in news, it is a start.

And hopefully the start of a changing attitude towards foreigners in general as well.

$665 bucks USD plus or minus for rape victims..  Jesus wept.  facepalm.gif 

What do western gov'ts give tourists who are raped as compensation?

 

Check out the link for National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards at this link: http://www.nacvcb.org/

That should answer your question at least as regard to the US.
