Aberdeenshire man, 83, dies from crash injuries
“Her father was the one who pulled her out of the car without knowing it was her,” Quigley said. Hamilton, 30, died of her injuries caused when another vehicle struck hers from behind, pushing it into the opposing lane of traffic, where a third car collided with hers head on, Quigley told WMUR. Hamilton leaves behind not only her father. “I know that she is a young mother,” Quigley said. “It’s a sad, sad day for all of us, not just because it’s Christmas Eve.” In Brookline, almost everyone knows Whitcomb and the tragedy he has suffered. The town of 4,000 holds Hamilton and Whitcomb in high regard, Quigley said. The drivers of the other vehicles were not hurt. Police think the driver of the car that rear-ended Hamilton may have been distracted, the chief said. “We are pretty certain that speed and impairment were not a factor so that would rule it down to driver distraction at this point,” Quigley said.

He was admitted to Mafraq Hospital for two weeks, and was later advised complete rest for two months. Permanent injury The Abu Dhabi Civil Court ordered a compensation of Dh800,000 after a medical panel concluded that his injuries are permanent and has caused 100 per cent damage to his spine. The Appeals Court raised the compensation to Dh1 million. Abdul Aziz Karama Al Amiri, the UAE lawyer who appeared for Hamza, said it is one of the biggest compensation amounts his law firm has won for an accident victim. It was a deserving case hence we decided to appear for him even without charging the initial court fee, said Al Amiri who runs Abdul Aziz Al Amiri Lawyers and Legal Consultants firm in Abu Dhabi. Hamza, who is planning to return to India soon, said his only regret was that his elder daughter, aged 21, had to discontinue her medical studies because of financial difficulties. I could not afford to pay her fees at that time. If I had this kind of money then my daughter would have become a doctor, said Hamza, who came to the UAE 15 years ago and lives with his wife Shaheena. He has been working for an Abu Dhabi bakery as a salesman and driver for the last seven years.
