Compensation for NSmen death should start from S$4.3million onwards.

Compensation for NSmen death should start from S$4.3million onwards.

Foreign 'talent' is compensated $4.3 million... PAP is always telling us that Singaporeans receive world class education, "every school a good school", world's best PISA test scores 'Singapore students top global ranking in reading, maths and science'[06Dec2016]
https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...-scien-7647202 .... SG gahmen is also very rich, pays world record salaries to mouthpiece President and the royal cabinet for their self proclaimed 'world class leadership'.

So when NSF/NSman dies (/murdered by superiors) in service , compensation cannot be any less than death of 32yrs old jobless foreign refugee lucky to find work in Singapore ...

Therefore, think benchmark for any 18yrs (with full, bright future ahead), compensation ABOVE $4.3million should be the norm...

Even if family morally shouldn't receive the whole S$4.3 million in the name of 'national service', the 'projected lifetime earnings' could be converted to examplary/ aggravated damages to be donated to a local NSmen ombudsmen /NGO to fund NSF/NSmen safety and health supervisory and advisory services of the deceased families choice or even any other non-NS Singapore based charity in memory of the NSman and to the betterment of all society.

Why not?

Widow of cyclist killed in crash gets $4.3m payout

Sum paid for Aussie expat's death in crash after cabby dozed off believed to be highest for dependency claim
K. C. VIJAYAN, SENIOR LAW CORRESPONDENT
May 07, 2018 06:00 am
An Australian widow whose cyclist husband died here after being knocked down by a taxi received some $4.3 million last month - believed to be the largest reported payout for an accident dependency claim here.

The High Court-approved payout, which was mutually agreed by the parties involved, capped a settlement reached some four years after the tragedy and a year after insurers for the taxi driver accepted 100 per cent liability.

In a previously reported dependency claim case in 2016 involving fatal personal injury, the affected family was awarded $2.6 million.

Mr Benjamin Paul Lawrance, 32, was killed on the spot from multiple injuries when a taxi collided into him from the opposite direction as he was cycling on Mandai Road just after 5.30am on July 14, 2014.

Mr Lawrance, an expatriate who had been in Singapore for less than a year, was cycling with others who witnessed the accident.

It emerged that cabby Mohammad Adzhar Ahmad had momentarily fallen asleep when his taxi cut to the right, across the continuous white dividing line on Mandai Road, near Nee Soon Flyover, and rammed into Mr Lawrance.

Adzhar was convicted in August 2015 in a district court, jailed for three months and banned from driving for seven years after admitting to causing death by a rash act.

Last year, the victim's widow, Mrs Sionnan Lawrance, 36, sued Adzhar in the High Court for negligence and sought damages for herself and a three-year-old son.

In claim documents filed, the housewife sought compensation because she and her son had been dependent on Mr Lawrance for support and maintenance.

As a regional manager for an offshore drilling company in Singapore, he was paid an expatriate's package.

SUPPORT
His death meant they lost their means of support, and at issue was the projected sum he could have earned over a lifetime to provide for them, given his promising career and future earnings abroad.

Lawyer Grace Malathy, representing Mrs Lawrance, engaged a forensic accountant from Matson, Driscoll and Damico to quantify the dependency claims, whose expert report was meant for scrutiny at court assessment hearings fixed for March.

Among other things, draft affidavits were also prepared and sent to the two accident witnesses - Mr Peter Galloway who in 2016 was in Antarctica carrying out oil exploration work, and Mr Daniel O' Connel who was in New Zealand.

It emerged that the station leader of the oil rig was an approved notary public and sourced to attest Mr Galloway's affidavit.

A notary public is an authorised person who can witness and certify legal documents used in legal cases abroad.

In the end, the court hearings were vacated as the quantum was settled through private negotiations between lawyers from Tan Kok Quan Partnership for Adzhar's insurers and Grace Law LLC for the widow.

The sums comprised $2.1 million in loss of dependency for the widow and $1.05 million for loss of dependency for the child, and another $1.185 million in special damages, among other things.

The settlement sum was approved by the High Court as a requirement since a child was involved as a party in the suit.

"This was a protracted case involving much legwork for a grieving widow," said Ms Malathy.

"Mrs Lawrance was unaware then of the prospect of a dependency claim and had thought compensation was for bereavement."

Proof is from PAP propaganda that they have invested well in Singaporean youth (and even more on themselves).

In anycase, morally, there cannot be too disparate a difference in such monetary compensation schemes, especially since an invaluable human life is unnecessarily and avoidably lost due to negligence or criminal conduct.

Additionally, the projected lifetime earnings (which shouldn't detract too far from S$4.3M) would be in majority classified as punitive damages and ringfenced for donation to a charity group of the deceased / families choice in remembrance of the deceased and to serve societal good ...

These would put military Generals and home team commissioners on the look out for such irresponsible, psychopathic/ just plain stupid employees and not just promote employees just based upon narrow KPI.

All servicemen will then take safety much more seriously and likewise be much more loyal to the service knowing that moral values are being upheld and that safety is not just a matter of lip service and empty talk.
