Mangaluru: Accident victim Ashwin D’Souza seeks help for medical treatment

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SB)

Mangaluru, Jul 26: Ashwin D’Souza, a 20-year-old youth residing in Kokkada, had many dreams for his family. He wanted to get his elder sister married, provide good medical treatment for his father and build a house for his family. D’Souza was determined to make his dreams a reality through hard work. Unfortunately, luck was not in his favour.

Ashwin was travelling to work on his two-wheeler, when a pick-up van rammed into him, say eye witnesses. The impact of the accident was such that Ashwin was thrown on the road. Good Samaritans rushed him to K S Hegde hospital. He was admitted in ICU for 5 days and had to undergo various surgeries which cost his family more than Rs two lac. Ashwin has sustained serious injuries on his leg and back bone and needs more surgeries and treatment to lead a normal life. As per doctors, who are treating Ashwin, another Rs 3 lac is needed for further treatment.

Ashwin’s family already face many financial struggles. Now, they are unable to afford the hospital expenses. They are under immense pressure. If the required surgeries are not done, Ashwin may have to suffer for life.

While Ashwin’s friends are trying to collect money for his daily medical expenses, his parents are now appealing with people, as their generosity can bring a ray of hope in the life of Ashwin.

Felix D’Souza, father of Ashwin, suffers from serious health problems. He is not in the position to visit hospital or collect money for his son’s treatment. Mother Carmine Monteiro is a house wife, who has not recovered from the shock that her son has met with an accident. The family does not have other sources of income and is not in a position to provide the treatment as advised by the doctors.

The family members now helplessly watch in dismay as Ashwin’s health deteriorates with each passing day. They are now seeking financial help from willing donors to provide treatment for Ashwin. They hope his treatment continues and he can lead a normal life again.

Those who wish to donate and help Ashwin, may send their contributions to the following bank account details:

    As of now, Ashwin has got sufficient funds for the treatment. His leg was septic again yesterday so they need to do grafting again. About kidney and other treatment doctors will give update later. This is as per conversation with his Ashwin's cousin, Prajwal Dsouza, who has requested to stop donations and those who wish to donate can donate to other needy persons.

    2 wheeler riders should ride responsibly on the roads, especially young riders. With many people depending on them for their livelihood one has to be all the more careful on the roads.

    Chetan mangalore,your good words dont help him now.He is in need of help.He was thrown away by pick up.not his own fault.When all vehicle riders are not riding as it should be.Sadly it always hits the wrong person means who ride as it should be.How many people are riding as per rules?How many are wearing helmets?etc etc.Lets not advice at a time where one person is not able to walk or need of help.It is then a mokery.

    Sanjy, Manganooru@ Not an easy task bro.
    He needs to file/ register a case in MACT - Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal
    Place : depends on where the accident took place
    Needs to provide documents of his vehicle, driving license FIR copy , medical bills
    FIR copy you can find the owners address- pickup van
    Respondents he’ll have to include the insurance company of the pickup van
    After recovery find a good lawyer for the same surely he can claim much more as per rules - process will take min 2 years
    Get well soon Ashwin

    I was thinking the same. How about the insurance? They collect premium & should cover the cost of medical expenses.
