Rs 9.37 Lakhs Compensation to kin for Son's Death in Accident

In Maharashtra, The Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) has awarded Rs. 9.37 Lakhs as compensation to the parents of a deceased person who died in a road accident. The boy was 20-year-old when he died in an accident in the year 2018.

This order by MACT was passed on 25th February, 2021 and the copy of the same was available from 28th February, 2021.

R.N. Rokade, a member of MACT ordered the accused truck’s owner and the vehicle insurer to pay compensation to the claimants, along with 8% interest from the date when the application was filed.

The claimants(parents of the deceased) resided in a place named Chandivali, near Mumbai, stated that their son, Himalaya Bisht was a MBA student and he also worked in a company from where his earnings were Rs. 8000 per month. They further stated that on 19th August, 2018, when their son was returning home on a motor cycle, a speeding truck hit the boy in a place named Majiwada in Thane, Mumbai. The victim suffered several hear injuries which led to death on the spot. The parents were financially and mentally dependent on their son and hence they are claiming for compensation.

The owner of the offending truck and the vehicle insurer opposed to pay the compensation.

MACT, after hearing to both the parties, came to the conclusion that the accident totally occurred due to rash driving of the truck driver and hence the truck owner and the insurer are liable to pay the compensation amount to the parents of the deceased.
