legal action against driver

  • 2 Answers

I hired a driver on 31.12.2016 who drive very recklessly and made an accident with a guard wall near raichak ,west bengal & as a result damaging the car extensively and miraculously passengers in my car (maruti celerio,auto gear) were saved from serious injury even death. The accident is completely his fault. road was free of cars and there was no interference from any thing. What action can be taken against him so that he could got some lessons. whether his driving licence could be banished for some time.

Whether any case is registered by police against the Driver for negligence in driving and other offences, if not to claim insurance towards repair you have to file police complaint

Here the best punishment would be filing a criminal case of an accident due to reckless driving. You can ask the passenger(s) to file an FIR against him. However please keep in mind that under the Motor Vehicles Act, the owner of vehicle shall also be liable to pay the damages to the victim. For more details on Road Accidents you can read our blog over here.
