Insurer Sued for Over US$568K Damages

first_imgTemple of Justice, where Civil Law Court ‘A’ is located. The victim of a motor accident, in which lost his left eye, has accused International Insurance Company of Liberia (IICL) of refusing to pay his hospital bill.The company’s alleged refusal has caused victim Sylvester Fallah to file US$568,620 and L$8,250 damages for personal injury lawsuit against the entity.Fallah’s lawsuit is also against David Williams, who he claimed owned the White DAF Truck with which the IICL was insured under a third party scheme when it was involved in the accident.The matter has been pending before Civil Law Court ‘A’ in Monrovia for nearly three years, because the insurance company has continuously asked for postponement of the case.The situation was again demonstrated yesterday when lawyers representing the company asked the court to suspend the case, because Williams has not been well and was seeking medication, a request which the court accepted.Fallah’s lawsuit claimed that while he was driving a Blue Nissan Primera bearing the license plate number PC-20717, on November 23, 2012, along the Cotton Tree to Harbel Road in Grand Bassa County, a White DAF truck bearing license plate BT-666, owned by Williams and operated by Manzu Bayo, entered in the opposite lane by four feet and swept the left view mirror of his car, where he sustained injury on is left eye.He claimed that a large portion of the broken glasses from the damaged left view mirror went into his left eye and caused it to bleed.After the incident, Fallah was on November 24, 2012, rushed to the Unification Town Health Center, but due to the seriousness of his jury, he was advised to seek further treatment at the New Eye Sight Center, on the S.D, Cooper Road, in Paynesville, where he underwent surgery to remove the broken glasses from his left eye.Doctors who treated him at the clinic provided a medical report and advised him to go for further surgeries, in a foreign country or elsewhere.Knowing that he could not afford the medical fees for Fallah’s eye treatment, Williams decided to introduce the insurance company as the entity that he insured his truck with.Then, Fallah alleged that the company accepted the liability for the injury as the result of the accident.“The insurance company also referred me to the S.D. Cooper Memorial Hospital, another hospital for further medical treatment to my condition,” he said.Because of the urgency of his situation, Fallah claimed that the company paid his initial hospital bill at the New Sight Eye Center, where he had been treated, before he was transferred by the insurance company to the S.D. Cooper Memorial Hospital to continue his treatment.“The hospital treated me twice but later refused to provide further medical treatment, because the company has not met its financial obligation, and they were going to only attend to me if I could afford the bill,” the document quoted Fallah as saying.“I told Williams and his insurance company about the message from the hospital and they failed to take any action to remedy my situation. They even refused and ignored every advice from the doctors for me to seek medication,” he claimed.Fallah also claimed that due to the defendants’ failure, he had not been able to do any follow-up surgery on his eye, and that has caused him to lose his left eye.Fallah also alleged that he had been advised to do further medical treatment on the other eye, otherwise the damage eye would affect the other eye.“I have spent the total US$50,000 on medical fees, and L$1,900,000 also on medical fees and I have lost all of my sources of income due to the accident that resulted to me injury, so I am appealing to you to please compel the company and Williams to pay the damages,” Fallah said, according to court records.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jan. 15 Deadline to Submit Apps to the Mobile Premier Awards

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts Tags:#apps#mobile center_img The mobile ecosystem is in the midst of an unprecedented wave of transformation. As business models adapt, new verticals and players emerge. Technology evolves, perceptions shift, and lives are improved.The Mobile World Congress, which will take place from Feb. 14-17 in Barcelona, is doubtless the most important of its kind, and every year, for a couple of days, the city of Barcelona pauses its romantic and alternative style and becomes the centre of the mobile technology world. In this atmosphere, a parallel event like the Mobile Premier Awards means a great opportunity for developers to show their apps.With an estimated 50,000 mobile professionals from over 200 countries attending the MWC, the congress aims to promote mobile technologies. Now in its fifth year, the MWC will focus on the early stage aspects of mobile development and showcase the most innovative apps from around the world bringing the developers and entrepreneurs to the spotlight.This post first appeared on ReadRiteWeb is supporting the MPAs as media partner. You can follow our coverage on the Web and @rwwes. Follow us on Twitter for a chance to win one of five tickets to the Mobile Premier Awards.Mobile World CongressIn terms of digital innovation, old Europe is usually behind North America and Asia, so hosting a major event like the MWC – which is organized by the GSMA and which unites nearly 800 of the world’s mobile operators and more than 200 companies in the mobile ecosystem – encourages local companies to find better ways to compete.There are other important European events related to IT, like LeWeb, and certainly they provide an excellent way to attract international attention, but the MWC goes beyond and puts Barcelona, Spain and Europe in the centre of the mobile industry.Mobile Premier AwardsIt sounds like a great idea to award some of the best and most innovative mobile apps in the same city -and at the same time – where major companies, media and every one else interested in mobile technologies are all together talking about the future.Smartphones have offered a new business line for small developers, a fantastic new line indeed; nevertheless it is very difficult to find success in a market that is full of competitors. The MPA gives entrepreneurs and developers a fantastic chance to show their apps.The awards are organized by dotopen, a consulting firm, and are supported by major companies with a common goal: promote multi-platform development and establish the awards as the reference for the community formed by entrepreneurs, startups and developers. This year’s awards ceremony will take place for the first time at the amazing Diagonal 00 tower, the new Telefonica R&D Catalunya headquarters.Last year’s edition received over 600 submissions, and this year the number could be even higher due to the great growth the app market has seen, the tremendous success of the iPhone 4, the rise of Android phones and the arrival of tablets (we mean the proper arrival).AppCircus at the Mobile Premier AwardsParticipation in the MPAs is free to any entrepreneur, company or developer with a mobile app. The nominated apps include a selection of the AppCircus Categories and the winners of last year’s AppCircus events.AppCircus is a series of traveling shows focused on mobile apps and is produced by dotopen as well.This traveling showcase is very dynamic, dotopen’s Rudy de Waele told us. “In 2010 we have done over 30 events globally between September and December. In 2011 we plan to do between 50 and 100 events globally,” he said.You still have a chance to pitch your application at the MPAs: the deadline to submit an app is Jan. 15. Read more information here.

On Feb 10, Modi will be 1st Indian PM in Palestine

first_imgAfter having hosted Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, PM Modi will land in Ramallah on February 10 for what will be the first-ever visit by an Indian prime minister to Palestine.Modi’s visit to Israel last year+ was also the first by an Indian PM and the one to Palestine follows the government’s decision to “de-hypenate” relations with the two entities+ as a departure from past practice of seeing visits to the region as balancing acts. While India and Palestine have been discussing the proposed visit for a while, this is the first confirmation of its date and it comes in the middle of Netanyahu’s visit to India.The visit will be significant for India as the government believes it will help dispel the notion that there has been any change in its Palestine policy since Modi assumed office in 2014. India’s recent vote against the US recognition of Jerusalem+ as Israel’s capital in the UN was intended to iterate its longstanding diplomatic position.Read it at Times of India Related Itemslast_img read more
