paying for damages

Hamechadesh is reporting that a young boy, a lad of 11 years old, was riding his bike in Bet Shemesh, near his house when he hit a pothole of some sort in the sidewalk caused by city construction meant to prepare the area for the planting of trees. The area has not been closed off as a safety precaution, and the kid went flying when his bike hit the pothole. The child sustained damage to his face, especially in the mouth area, including losing a tooth. I hope he was wearing a helmet and did not also sustain any head damage.

The kid was taken for medical care and referred to the hospital for emergency care to save the tooth. He has had to undergo several procedures for both his tooth and for other damage done to the mouth and jaws.

The family went to a lawyer who filed suit, and they came to an agreement with the City of Bet Shemesh. The City will pay the family 200,000nis in damages that include payment for procedures the child must undergo, or has undergone, along with for their pain and discomfort and other damages. They immediately went to the area and closed it off to the public and fixed what needed to be fixed...

Be safe out there, but if not, don't hesitate to sue the city for damages caused by their negligence. That might include the many potholes int eh roads around town causing damage to cars, and many other common problems left open by the "it will be ok" attitude prevalent here. Besides for the money, that really seems to be the only way to get them to actually move on these things.

  1. You can sue the city...I'm sure they'll figure out how to get it back through taxes, etc.
