You may be stressed that you will not have the option to make a case since you don't have the insurance details of another driver. Sometimes it’s impossible to have the registration number of the other vehicle that caused the accident. In such cases, MIB is responsible to pay for your compensation under the Untraced Drivers Agreement or the Uninsured Drivers Agreement.
All roads and footpaths have to be maintained regularly to ensure the safety of vehicles. Potholes, cracks in roads, poor planning of highway junctions should be taken care of. In case your vehicle hit debris or anything that’s not meant to be on road, then the highway authority will be held responsible for your accident.
You have three years from the time of the accident to file your case. In the case of children, any litigation friend can file on their behalf till they turn 18. Else, they can file themselves once they turn 18 and until they turn 21. If the accident has left anyone mentally incapable, then they can file compensation claims until they regain their sanity.
