  • ansHas any case been registered against you for rash driving u/s279 of IPC by the Police? Enquire. If not then relax. Nothing will happen to you. If yes, then collect evidence including photographs of the spot of the accident, conditions of the cars after accident, if possible. For insurance claim for repair, the insurer has certainly taken photograph of your car. Collect one copy from him.

    Accidents are not punishable but accidents due to rash driving are punishable. You shall have to prove that you did not drive rash, 6. Engage a local lawyer having expertise in this field.
