Security guard wins compensation after injury

A middle-aged woman and her car insurance company were ordered to pay nearly 102,000 yuan (US$16,402) in compensation to a security guard who was injured while trying to collect her parking fare, Jing'an District People's Court said today.

The woman, identified as Zhang He, was driving out of a residential complex on Wuding Road W. when the security guard, Wang Hong, stopped her and asked her to pay the parking fee on March 12, 2011. She refused and they got into an argument.

Wang told the court Zhang tried to leave without paying when he was called away for something else. Wang testified that Zhang gunned the engine and he then chased the vehicle, only to grab the car door and fall to the ground.

Wang sustained a broken right femur in the fall and needed surgery. He sued in December, demanding more than 100,000 yuan compensation from Zhang and her insurance company.

At the hearing, Zhang said she was willing to pay the parking fee but Wang gave him the wrong invoice. She told the court she didn't realize Wang had grabbed the car door when she gunned the engine to leave.

The car insurance company also refused to pay compensation, claiming Zhang injured Wang deliberately.

The court ruled the car insurance company to pay 100,900 yuan and Wang to pay 1,080 yuan since there was no evidence to prove Wang injured Zhang deliberately.
