He was also charged with insulting the plaintiff with gestures intended to intimidate him
A motorist in Al Ain has been instructed to pay Dh15,000 to a young man for deliberately hitting his car on a main road and insulting him with gestures.
Official court documents say the Arab man has filed a lawsuit against the driver, seeking compensation for the material and moral damage he suffered as a result of the incident.
The plaintiff stated that the defendant was driving in Al Ain when the defendant deliberately swerved and hit his vehicle. The man said the driver also gestured insultingly at him with the intent of disrupting and intimidating him.
Al Ain Crown Court earlier ruled that the driver endangered the life of the plaintiff when he crashed. The man was also found guilty of insulting the plaintiff.
The man then filed a civil suit against him seeking damages.
After hearing both parties, the Al Ain Civil Court of First Instance ordered the defendant to pay Dh15,000 to the plaintiff for the material damages he suffered as a result of the crash.
The court dismissed all other claims against the defendants.
The man was also told to pay the plaintiff’s legal costs.
