Motor Accident Law

Overview of Motor Accident Law

Motor Accident Laws refer to the legal rules that ascertain the accountability when there is personal or property damage in case of motor vehicle accidents. This area of the law consists of the principles of negligence, specially when it comes to personal injury cases. In case of a victim of car accident or a kin of victim, the main concern is to get justice and compensation. The Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) deals with such matters of compensation. It has the authority to deal in claims made on account of loss of life of a close one, personal injury, loss of property etc. incurred due to motor accident. A victim or the legal heirs of people who have died in an accident can approach the Tribunal for compensation. They can make such claims with the help of an advocate. It is pertinent to note here that victims below 18 years of age are not eligible to file compensation themselves. They require an advocate to do so.
