I don't think this is healthy at all if judge approved the damages that the RSAF pliot want to get from cabby due to cabby negligence in beating red light.

Imagine if Judge approved, we maybe following USA footstep where a simple fall in Mcdonald due to floor is wet and Mcdonald can get sued for few millions in dollar. Not healthy at all. So hope judge to reject the 4million in damages and injuries but maybe instead only approved say 20k due to cabby is also wrong in the 1st place by beating red light. So the cabby also need to bare some consequences.

The pilot will of course go for max claim expecting some reductions at the end.

But the fact is that she is still working albeit redeployed. So claiming the whole loss of income over the entire career as pilot up till retirement, is already excessive.

Cabby how to pay? Declare bankruptcy, end of story.

Insurance ? Not sure can boh..

A air warfare officer is VERY different from a pilot.
The lost of income is not impossible.. if you consider post saf career add commercial pilot too.

Actually all this huge claims ...... running into milion’s in US ...... it’s paid by the Insurers right ?? .... same for Singapore also right ?? Then what is insurance for ?? maybe the Court fine him and jail him / ban for driving period is personal payment right ??

Sue cabby, but he has insurance so insurer pay.

Redeploy is not so simple.
Being Apache pilot likely would have taken 4 years of training.

Redeploy meant retraining.
The pay loss could be very different comparing one is in the air and the other on the ground or underground.

Sue for full loss of income and future income. Then deduct the redeployed income.

If happen to violinist or pianist, can't even redeploy, whole career gone.

But this is a civil suit right? Will insurance pay in this case?

Imo I think the judge will award her with the long term injury treatment compensation but not the lost of income as a pilot. Simply because it's not a permanant disability. In the past accident cases that involve permanant disability to the victim the judge will award millions cos victim is unable to work due to the disability. She can still fly a drone bah?

Most general insurers transfer part of their overall risks to re-insurers. So they might not cough out the entire sum.

Anyway, multi millions payout is not considered huge lah...

Yes. Not only that, could have become a commercial pilot also. Now all gone down the drain.

U drive teksi also meh?


I hope she gets her money and serve a wake up call to all the teksi drivers and company. Only know how to say sorry but no action. Pui

I'm frankly appalled by some of the views and comments expressed here.
 
Sexist, misogynistic and blatantly ignorant.
 
Have you any idea how much/long it takes to train an attack helicopter pilot? Have you any idea how much multitasking goes on in the cockpit of an Apache in a combat situation?
 
Actually, I don't know either - I am not in the Air Force. But it would be presumptuous to dismiss her $4 million dollar claim as spurious. Want to play also don't play so big until High Court. The judge would throw it out summarily if that were the case. But in this case, the news article does specifically mention that the claim is substantiated.
 
And it boggles my mind that some think that just because she is a woman, she would be grounded at some point because she has the ability to bear children means she needs to do so to "fulfil another national service". Her body, her choice - in the absence of which, she can fly till mandatory retirement like any other man.
 
Last point - it was already ruled without a doubt and the cab driver has fully accepted liability for causing the accident through no fault of the pilot.
 
If you don't agree with the message that it is sending, I don't agree with you either. You got behind the wheel, you made your choices, in this case to beat the red light. You created the outcome, you bear the consequences whatever it may be.
