Domino's Pizza India's promise to home deliver hot pizzas within 30 minutes has cost it dearly with a road mishap tribunal ordering it to pay a teenager injured by one of its motorcycle delivery drivers.
According to the Times of India, Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) Judge Dinesh Bhatt ordered Domino's Pizza India to pay the compensation to a boy, saying that he was hit by the delivery driver, Ravi Mishra, driving in a rash and negligent manner on Oct. 29, 2010. Mishra's motorcycle struck the teenager who was riding his bicycle on Delhi University's north campus.
The teenager received several injuries including fractures on his thigh, eyebrows and other head and body injuries.
The court ordered Domino's to pay a total of Rs 1,14,682 ($2,583.49 U.S.) as compensation to the injured boy.
Reliance General Insurance, which covered the motorcycle, will pay the fines.
