Tribunal awards Rs. 1.2 crore in motor accident case
In one of the biggest compensation packages to be awarded in motor accident cases in recent times, the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal here on Thursday awarded over Rs. 1.2 crore to the family of a businessman who died in a road accident on August 30, 2012.The tribunal presided over by Additional District Judge R. Shanmuga Sundaram directed the owner of a truck involved in the accident and thecompany with which it was insured to jointly pay Rs. 1,20,44,500 along with interest at the rate of 7.5 per cent from the date of claim made in 2013.After ordering that the amount should be deposited within a month, the judge made it clear that out of the total amount ordered by him, the claimant T.N. Rekha, wife of T. Prabhakaran, of Mahatma Gandhi Nagar in Madurai, who died at the age of 39, shall be entitled to Rs.46.32 lakh and their minor daughter to Rs.45.50 lakh. The deceased was killed while travelling in a car with his friend, who was driving, from Madurai to Tiruchi.
He also said that parents of the deceased would be entitled to Rs.14,31,250 each with proportionate interest and that all major claimants could withdraw 50 per cent immediately after the money was deposited. The minor’s share alone shall remain in the bank until she attained majority.
However, the mother of the minor girl was permitted to withdraw the interest alone once in three months. Apart from the compensation amount, the tribunal also fixed the advocate fee at Rs.1,16,445 for lawyers I. Robert Chandrakumar and K. Murugesan who represented the claimants.
Mr. Chandrakumar hailed the verdict as one of the rarest cases in which the court had awarded over Rs.1 crore in a motor accident claim petition. “We had claimed Rs.1.6 crore and the tribunal has awarded nearly Rs.1.4 crore if we include the advocate fee also. This is a rarity,” he said.
