Boy injured in car accident can’t afford treatment
    2018-January-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A 7-YEAR-OLD boy was injured in a car accident in Longgang District. His family couldn’t afford the medical costs after the driver, who should have taken responsibility for the accident, became out of reach, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

The driver, surnamed Zhang, hit a motorcycle at the intersection of Shahe Road and Futong Road on Nov. 1. The motorcycle’s driver, surnamed Xie, died at the scene and the two boys on his motorcycle were taken to a hospital. One of the boys, who was Xie’s son, was pronounced dead at the hospital that night. The other boy, surnamed Liang, was transferred to Longgang District Central Hospital for treatment.

Xie was Liang’s neighbor and he was taking the two boys to school that day.

Liang has made a good recovery at the hospital over the past two months. According to Liang’s father, Zhang paid the family 50,000 yuan (US$7,669) to cover the boy’s medical costs.

He said Zhang has been out of contact since then, and his low-income family couldn’t afford the medical bills remaining after the money had been spent. Liang’s mother said the hospital has stopped offering some of the treatments to the boy since they have accumulated overdue payments totaling 2,000 yuan.

The boy was diagnosed with a cerebral contusion and fractures in his legs. He is still staying in the hospital for rehabilitation therapy.

According to Longgang traffic police, Xie should hold the majority of the responsibility, because he didn’t have a driver’s license and he violated rules when crossing the intersection. Zhang should hold secondary responsibility as he was driving above the speed limit.

Both Xie and Zhang hadn’t bought insurance for their vehicles, meaning that Zhang has to pay the compensation himself.
