KIM McCusker, the young Johannesburg advocate who was dragged underneath a taxi for more than 700 metres in September 2011, will receive R10,4 million from the Road Accident Fund. “I cannot say I am totally satisfied, but the trial was … emotionally and physically traumatic. If it had to continue another year, it would have made even more demands on me and my marriage. I chose the lesser of two evils,” she said. Her father, Douglas McCusker, who acted as her lawyer, confirmed they decided for logistical reasons to accept the settlement.
