The accident and the payout
Following the incident on Jan 28, 2013, Ms Azlin Amran sued SMRT for negligence and sought about $3 million in damages.
SMRT settled the lawsuit last weekfor a final payout of an amount that neither party would disclose.
Medical reports were tendered in court to support Ms Azlin's claims and attest to the seriousness of her condition.
Through lawyer Nadia Moynihan, Ms Azlin alleged that SMRT had failed in its duty of care and sought special and general damages to pay for her medical treatment, caregivers and loss of earnings.
In its defence, SMRT contested the claims, arguing that Ms Azlin had caused or contributed to her injuries by failing to keep a proper lookout, among other things.
A High Court case management conference was held before Assistant Registrar Janice Wong and the case had been amicably settled out of court.
In March, SMRT was fined $120,000 after pleading guilty to one charge under the Workplace Safety and Health Act.
