Injured Persons Bill

We hear and read of accidents that take place around the country that have been mishandled in either hospitals or by the police. Not many of us are aware of the Injured Persons Bill that was passed by the National Assembly way back in 2003-4 and which had been passed as the law by Parliament on March 1, 2006.

The Injured Persons Bill implementation as a law was a joint initiative of MPA Sindh, Syed Irfan Ali Shah and Mensa Pakistan, as Mensa Pakistan met with Mr. Shah at a meeting and discussed the need for such a bill. In turn, Mr. Shah dug up the Bill that was passed a couple of years before but not implemented as law.

As citizens of our country and respective cities, it is not only our right to know what we are entitled to in case of an injury, but also our duty to educate others around us of our rights by practicing them whenever need be.

    Cant read the bill its been photocopied badly… do you know what the main point of it is ? can we start claims in court against people,companies for neglect ?
    I guess Karachi fires in tall buildings would be a good start case.
