Road accident

What action a victim can take against the accused car driver in a road accident? Is it a bailable offence?

It is a prosecution case therefore when FIR is lodged, the State wll see to it.... it is bailable offence


howver, victim can file case under Motor Accident Tribunal for damages


it is btter to have medical, life insurance for everybody

Anamika is  right.

I think if victim dies, then it would be a Non-bailable offence.   As in the case of Sanjee Nanda, who was booked u/s 304 A of IPC.

The queston of accident on rash and negligence driving and  accident in normal course like brake failure or punchure of tyre is different.
