Asked in Criminal Law from Malerkotla, Punjab
what was the date of accident
Advocate, New Delhi
A violation of law is a 'violation'. It is not accidental.
Since the accident was caused due to your negligence the driver and pillion rider are entitled to file a FIR and claim for compensation against you. It is in your interest to settle the matter out of court with them.
tell me if your car was insured you are not liable to pay damages but you will be liable for negligence driving criminally
Advocate, Greater Noida
You are liable to criminal prosecution notwithstanding third party insurance of your car.
