The “Claim Petition under the Motor Vehicles Act (MACT)” refers to a legal plea filed by an individual or their legal representative seeking compensation for injuries, damages, or loss suffered due to a motor vehicle accident. The Motor Vehicles Act, particularly Section 166, empowers victims or their families to approach the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) to claim compensation for accidents resulting in injury or death.
This petition outlines the details of the accident, including the date, time, and location, along with the circumstances surrounding the incident. It specifies the injuries sustained, damages caused, and the losses incurred as a result of the accident. Additionally, it includes details of the vehicles involved and the parties responsible, if identified.
The Claim Petition filed under the MACT Act aims to seek fair and just compensation for the losses suffered due to the negligence or fault of another party in a motor vehicle accident. The tribunal assesses the petition, considers evidence presented, and determines the appropriate compensation based on the severity of injuries, financial losses, medical expenses, and other relevant factors. This legal process provides an avenue for victims or their families to seek adequate compensation and relief in the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident.
