Hope floats, I'm sure you'll be just fine!

All this jazz, plus my personal experience of hospitals avoiding treating people for even minor injuries stating 'accident case' makes me wonder - no wonder 'Hit and RUN', where feasible, is the easiest, most convenient, and a common reaction in our country. It'll take a saint to endure all that you're going through.

Its really sad. Hope your ordeal ends. Ideally, you should have gotten compensation from their insurance for damage to your vehicle, since you are clearly not at fault

@Hellstar, glad to know the new judge is going to be favorable when you step in court in 5 months from now. Hope it will end favorably.

Regarding my case, a few police folks came down to my home 2-3 days back and wanted to settle the case via. Lok Adalat. The police guys wanted me to come to the PS where they will call the victim too and wanted to wrap it up there and then.

I called my lawyer who told me not to go to PS as this adalat is held at court and we will do it there. So calling me to PS was a guise to pry some money out of me.

Anyways, i think i may be going to the court tomorrow for the Lok Adalat and hopefully, it should be settled for good amicably ( even if i may have to shell out more money). As you know i already paid the victim 40K which was against my lawyer's advice.

Good luck to you and me as well.

Hope and pray the new judge is more responsive.

HellStar, is it ok for you to discuss a sub judice case?
i checked with my advocates junior and he said its ok unless i am divulging any informtaion what can lead to identifying the other . Now i tend to belive this unless some other advocate can contradict

Is that possible ? and i dont think the person would have taken insurance he just doesnt look like a guy who even has a family .Ok to relate i will give an example you would pass many guys like this while travveling, on the roadsides they are nothing but vagabonds and have no financial or family backing .

But when somebody like this expires ,since there is big money to be paid out suddenly some family materialises out of somewhere to claim the money and once they get the money they just disappear. The insurance case was disposed off a couple of months back and my advocate told me that A sum of Rs 5 Lakh was given to the so called dependents of the deceased.

Hellstar, I just saw this thread. My prayers are with you in this regards and wish you come out of all this soon.



My frend had a similar issue, but no criticality as in your case. He got a summons to appear in court. He went and pleaded guilty and paid some fine. Later he got some case from some accidents tribunal by the guys asking for compensation. he kept a lawyer and believes insurance company will take care of this case.

Now after reading through this - I have a question. Was it ok for him to plead guilty? Will the compenastion case be handled by insurance?

I am not sure , but did you friend consult the insurance company advocate or his own advocate before pleading guilty ? The Insurance company is always party to such compensation claim cases and they would take care but with respect to matter pertaining to the court and legal system its always best to consult an advocate before doing anything.

Just checked with him. The first case were he pleaded guilty was some time in 2006 mid. 2006 end he got the other case for compensation, where he kept a lawyer. So I guess he just wanted to ge rid of the first one some how, but the second case was unexpected.

As per insurance company manager, you dont need a separate lawyer for a motor vehicle insurance claims case. Of course, you need a valid insurance policy and satisfy the drivers requirement (i.e. valid and effective driving licence). If there are third-party claims you just need to co-operate with the insurance company. Their panel lawyers will handle the case from the time they receive the claims-notice from third-party or summons from the court. The insurance company will resolve the case out-of-court or may decide to fight in the court. If reqested by the insurance company, you just need to sign vakalatnama and written-staments prepeared by them, so that insurance company can defend the case in MACT. They will carry their own investigations etc. It is a public-fund, so they have a responsibility to utilize properly.

I read this story today, If I am not mistaken its been two years since the accident happened and still there is no closure of this case. This really speaks why people run after hitting. Brave of you to stand in front of people and then court. Its takes high amount of ordeal, both emotional and financial.

Its high time our judges start working like other white collar people. That will help expedite cases pending for ages, they have been working like judges from British Era and continue to work with such leisure.

Totally.
But also the judicial system is so designed that it moves with snails pace.

I guess we should have fast track courts for these cases also.
This will at least bring more order and peace of mind rather than slowly eating away our life walking in and out of courts.
