CHENNAI: The victim of a traffic accident was awarded `2 lakh as compensation by a Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal here after it was found that the two-wheeler was not insured at the time of the accident.

According to sources, about six years ago, P Vanisri (25) of Kilpauk was injured when the bike, owned by B Sivaraj of Virugambakkam and driven by one of his acquaintances, hit her while on EVR Road near Hotel Blue Diamond. She had then filed a compensation claim before a fast track court.

The claim petition was initially dismissed for default on April 12, 2012. Later in last December, the case was re-opened. The insurer of the vehicle, who is the second respondent to the claim petition, contended that the vehicle involved in the accident was not insured with the respondent company at the time of accident.

As the counsel for the petitioner could not prove the vehicle was insured with the second respondent, judge J Chandran, Special Sub Court No. II, Chennai, passed an exparte order against the vehicle owner to pay `2 lakh as compensation for the injuries and mental agony suffered by the petitioner.
