SC Dismisses Challenge Against Delhi HC Decision Holding That Widow’s Right To Compensation For Husband’s Death Will Not Abate After Re-Marriage

The Supreme Court has affirmed a Delhi High Court decision that a widow’s right to claim compensation under the Motor Vehicles Act for the death of her husband in a motor vehicle accident will not abate on her re-marriage. By dismissing the SLP against the Delhi High Court decision, the Supreme Court has affirmed that the right of a widow to claim compensation on account of death of her husband due to motor vehicle accident will not abate on remarriage and that she was entitled to equal share as the parents of the deceased for ‘loss of dependency’.
