MILLENNIAL SOLON: INSURANCE COVERAGE NEEDED AT OUR LIGHT RAILS, PNR

Our sympathies go to the woman whose arm or hand was severed when she fell on the rails of the MRT 3 today, November 14. MRT 3 must shoulder all her hospitalization, recovery, and rehabilitation expenses.

These incidents resulting to injuries and deaths along our country’s light rails and railways highlight the need for the provision of insurance coverage meant to make sure all victims are properly compensated and the government is also protected as to liability costs.

There are different ways to go about this. One way is via microinsurance on a per passenger per trip basis. Another way is for the different rail firms to get insurance covering their entire networks. Yet another approach is for the rail firms to require their maintenance and operations service providers to get the insurance coverage.

Other options can also be put forth by other sectors.

Bottom line is the cost to the riding public and the government must be reasonably minimal or hardly felt. Higher fare rates must not be the result of the insurance coverage for these incidents. (END)
