Rs 9.58L compensation to Family for death of kin in Accident:  Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT).

In a road accident, after 3 members of a family passed away, the Thane Motor Accident Claims Tribunal has awarded an amount of Rs. 9.58Lacs as compensation to the victims’ family. District Judge M.M. Walimohammed said in a recent order that the offending vehicle’s owner is liable to pay  compensation to the victim at 7% interest per annum starting from the date of filing the claim.

In this case, the claimants were a 58 year old lady and her 2 daughters. They had filed a complaint before MACT that the incident took place on 16th of August, 2016 when the woman’s husband and 2 sons were on the way to Nashik in a car and a speeding vehicle from the opposite side jumped across the divider and collided with their car on Nashik Highway at Bhiwandi in Maharasthra. The three people who were there in the car(lady’s husband and 2 sons) were heavily injured and passed away. While seeking the compensation, the claimants mentioned that the three victims worked as labourers and their yearly income was Rs. 40,000 each.

The insurance policy that was submitted by the victims’ family got rejected by MACT because the validation of the policy was from July 25th, 2014 to July 24th, 2015 and the accident took place in 2016. But, the MACT directed the offender to compensate for the loss and pay Rs. 1.75 Lacs for the death of the husband and Rs. 3,91,500 for the death of her 2 sons each.

This is indeed a good measure taken by MACT to help the victims’ family in their hour of need.
