(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Muscat Appeals Court, ruling in favour of an Indian accident victim, has ordered paying him RO76,000 as compensation. The victim's lawyers are calling this one of the biggest amount ordered to be paid as damages in an accident case. 

The victim, 42 year old Sunil Surendran, worked as an automobile workshop assistant in Nizwa. He met with an accident on June 4, 2012 in which his hand was crushed under a vehicle's wheel and was left  permanently damaged, his advocates Nassr al Siyabi and Prasad MK of Khalid al Wahaabi Advocates and Legal Consultants said. 

A Nizwa court, in an earlier judgment, had awarded him RO62,400 as compensation. Surendran's lawyers then moved the Court of Appeal which increased the amount to RO76,000. The lawyers in their appeal told the court that his arm has been left paralysed due to extensive nerve damage.

They told that the accident had left him unfit to fulfill responsibilities towards his family and that he may have to undergo prolonged treatment.

''We had filed an appeal against the previous court order. This amount is one of the biggest compensations awarded to an accident victim in Oman,'' said Siyabi and Prasad MK.

Surendran had undergone brief treatment at Nizwa Hospital before being sent to his home town in Kerala with the help of the Indian Embassy's social welfare department.

The lawyers said the compensation is a fair verdict in favour of Surendran who had mortgaged his property to come to Oman for work.
