A man hit by a bus in Abu Dhabi will get Dh51,000 in compensation from the company that owns the vehicle and the bus driver.

The Abu Dhabi Court of Family, Civil and Administrative Cases obligated the company and the bus driver to pay the man compensation for injuries that he sustained. They will also pay all court fees and lawyer’s fees.

According to court records, the bus driver was reversing the vehicle when he ran over the victim. Medical records showed that the victim suffered some disability following the accident.

The victim then filed a civil lawsuit against the company and the bus driver, adding that the driver reversed the company bus without caution.

A separate criminal case was filed against the bus driver, who was found guilty of negligence and fined Dh5,000 in addition to paying the victim’s fees related to the lawsuit. ICA/Expat Media
