Am I the only one who is confused about the case this week where a child sued, through his grandmother, his mother, who was uninsured, for damages as a result of an accident in which his mother was at fault??
Leaving aside the appalling consequences and the need to provide for the support of the child, what happened to his mother, was she charged with driving without insurance?
What sort of legal/political system is it that requires the significant costs involved in a court case to resolve a situation where the insurers bureau is there just to cover this sort of case? By the way, I assume that all those of us who are insured are paying something to the fund that pays out in these cases.
I notice also that the judge mentioned the 'windfall' that arises for the relatives if the victim dies, is there no provision that the remaining funds are repaid to the bureau in such unfortunate cases??
