- By the person who has sustained the injury.
- By the owner of the property where death has resulted from the motor accident.
- By all or any of the legal representatives of the deceased.
- By any agent duly authorized by the person injured or all or any of the legal representatives of the deceased, as the case may be.
Simply put, if a driver is involved in an accident in India and if it caused victim’s death then, a minimum of INR 50,000/- and if permanent disablement is caused then, a minimum of INR 25,000/- must be paid.
