Brothers Who Lost Parents In Accident Get Compensation After 12Years

In a road mishap in Uttar Pradesh 12 years ago, two brothers lost their parents, grandmother and an elder brother. The accident involved a tanker, and after 12 years of rigorous fight, they have now been awarded a compensation of Rs 2.22 crore by a Motor Accident Claim Tribunal (MACT). Anoop Kumar Mendiratta, MACT presiding officer, directed Oriental Insurance Company Ltd — with which the offending tanker was insured — to pay Rs 2,21,63,491 to Sandeep and Sumit Tomar, residents of Janakpuri, West Delhi for the death of their parents in December 2004. “It has been proved that the accident was caused due to rash and negligent driving of driver. Hence driver is to be held responsible for the accident.” said the judge as reported by Hindustan Times.


On December 30, 2004, when one of the brothers Sandeep was travelling with his father, mother, sister and grandmother towards Shamli from Muzaffarnagar in UP along with the driver met with an accident. The car was hit by a tanker at Panipat Khatima Road at around 9 PM. The accident was fatal, and it killed five out of six occupants. Sandeep only survived the crash, though he was grievously injured. His mother, sister and grandmother died on the spot while father later passed away at the hospital.


“It is difficult that the petitioners (sons) had to continue their father’s business at a very tender age of 18 and 21 which requires expertise and experience,” said the Tribunal as quoted by Hindustan Times. The tribunal also noted that one of the brothers had to quit his education abroad and had to settle back in India due to the accident.
