India’s road safety statistics never fails to shock in its enormity. Over 1.3 million people in India have been killed in road crashes in the last ten years. Another 5 million plus have been seriously injured or disabled over the same period. One of the ways for accident victims in India to be compensated is through motor vehicle insurance which can be categorized under two heads — own damage that covers any physical damage to the vehicle, and third party liability that provides for death, injury and property damage of others involved in the accident. This book gives an insight on the recent trends of judiciary and practices prevailed in the insurance industry. In a country like India which is said to be the accident capital of the world, this is all the more necessary to have an insight on the procedural ambiguities and parameters of compensation to victims of road accident cases. Written in rich, data prose, this spell-casting book is a feast for the brain and the heart.
