Car damage claims

I want to understand what is the recourse one should take when your car is hit by somebody else's vehicle and it was clearly not your fault.

How should we pursue such cases and make sure that there is a meaningful settlement. more

If you have a valid insurance package, you are eligible to claim damages for loss caused by other. That's why we insure. Your package should have own damage and third party. so your insurer pays when you damage your own car, other damage your car and also when you damage others.
Similarly when a third party has damaged your car without any default on yours, you have option to claim with your own insurer or that of the third party's insurer or individual. In any of these cases, you need a FIR. more

In the Legal parlance the SPECIAL DAMAGES are normally
a). ACTUAL LOSS OF EARNING
b). MEDICAL EXPENSES
c). FUNERAL EXPENSES
d). LEGAL EXPENSES INCURRED
