National Insurance Company Ltd v. Sukhdev Singh & Ors - FAO-335-2007 [2007] RD-P&H 927 (25 January 2007)

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA AT CHANDIGARH

FAO No.335 of 2007

Date of Decision: 25.1.2007

National Insurance Company Ltd

Appellant

versus

Sukhdev Singh and others

Respondents

CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE JASBIR SINGH
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE BALDEV SINGH

Present: Shri R.C.Gupta, Advocate for the appellant Jasbir Singh, J. (Oral)

This appeal has been filed against award dated 8.9.2006, passed by the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal, Ambala (in short, the Tribunal), granting an amount of Rs.68,000/- to the respondent claimant, on account of injuries suffered by him, in a motor accident, on 29.2.2004.

Contention of counsel for the appellant, that the driver of the vehicle was not possessing a valid driving licence at the time of accident, is liable to be rejected. In that regard, no evidence was led by the appellant before the Tribunal. Further contention that the amount awarded is on the higher side is also not tenable. It has come on record that the claimant Sukhdev Singh received grievous injuries in the accident, in question. He remained admitted in PGI, Chandigarh for few days. He had suffered fracture of right shaft femur. Surgical operation was conducted upon him on 27.3.2004. He continued to get treatment even thereafter from PGI, Chandigarh. Disability has been assessed at 10%. In view of this, we feel that the amount awarded, is just and reasonable. No case is made out for interference.

Dismissed.
