Motor Vehicles accident

  • 2 Answers

Hi,i was met with an accident and i was the only survivor of that crash. My bike is not insured that time. What will be consequences of this case? Will it end as loss of money for me?

Answers 2

We are sorry to hear that. Yes, the consequences of the case will be bad. You haven’t insured the bike which requires compulsory registration under Section 146 of Motor Vehicle. As for the accident you will have to prove by the help of witnesses that you were not at fault due to which the accident happened. But the penalty for not insuring your bike will definitely be imposed.[1]


[1] Section 196, Motor Vechile Act, 1988
