MACT cases are not as simple as appear to be. There FIR, site plan, non-negligence of the victim and negligent act of the driver of the vehicle and in some cases the lack of road worthiness of the vehicle have to be proved and the driver has to be identified and eye-witnesses have to be produced. Hence, legal assistance is utmost important.
Even in family matters also, advocates' role shall not be underestimated.
In these days, it is observed that a systematic attempt is being made to diminish the role of advocates and publicly critisising them, rediculing them etc. Some Acts are either prohibiting or restrcting the participation of advocates in judicial proceedings. It appears that the advocates have to serve only multi-national companies and big coporate houses of India and they are not to represent the deprived sections of the society. When their cases come, instead of dispensing justice on the basis of judicial principles, they are sent to mediation centre so that they will accept the petty amounts offered by opposite corporations. In MACT cases, if the advocates will not be there, the insurance companies run over the victims' families mericilessly and pay the amounts for which only peanuts can be purchased.
