An interview with relatives of the victims killed in the crash that aired on a news talk programme on Thairath TV on Monday has sparked public outrage.
The relatives said they had not received a single baht of compensation from Orachorn over the past nine years. The clip has gone viral.
On Dec 27 2010, Orachorn drove her car into the rear of a passenger van carrying students and staff of Thammasat University's Rangsit campus travelling on the Don Muang Tollway.
Orachorn was 16 at the time and not eligible to hold a licence.
In 2011, she was charged with driving without a licence, reckless driving causing death and injuries, property damage, and using a mobile phone while driving.
She was sentenced to three years in prison, which was later suspended.
She was ordered to perform 48 hours of community service annually for four years as a condition of her release.
According to a Supreme Court document, Orachorn used her new name Rawinbhirom Arunvongse.
Affected parties sued her. On May 8, the Supreme Court ordered Orachorn to pay 26 million baht to the surviving victims and families of the dead victims. The case involved 28 plaintiffs.
The compensation ranges from 4,000 baht to 1.8 million baht per case, according to Thammasat University Law Centre, which is monitoring the case closely.
Following the Thairath TV programme, injured victim Waranyoo Kedchu wrote on his Twitter account "@tintinwaranyoo" that he is still waiting for 400,000 baht in compensation.
He also posted court orders related to the case.
He revealed that he was a third-year student at Thammasat University travelling in the van at the time of the accident.
He claimed the lawyer representing Orachorn challenged him to pursue the 400,000 baht compensation in a bankruptcy case and offered him a financial settlement of less than 400,000 baht. He did not receive any money.
"The lawyer bargained with me to reduce the money as much as possible. It is as if he was bargaining over the price of fish or vegetables in a fresh market," he wrote.
The Bangkok Post tried to contact the lawyer reportedly representing Orachorn, without success.
