Compulsory Third Party (“CTP”) Insurance must be taken out with respect to a motor vehicle to cover any injury or death occasioned by the motor vehicle. If injury or death arises, a claim can be made against the CTP policy, usually by the injured party or if the incident resulted in the death of another, by a dependent.
If the motor vehicle involved in an accident cannot be located, or if a current CTP policy is not held, a claim can be made against a “nominal insurer” being the relevant Authority.
If a CTP claim is made, various factors may be considered when determining whether the claim should be accepted. These factors may including:
- What events caused the accident?
- Who was the party at fault or did both parties contribute to the accident?
- What is the amount claimed?
- What is the extent of any injuries alleged by the claimant?
- What past and future loss will the claimant incur as a result of their injuries?
There are various time limits and procedures involved in making a claim against a party’s CTP insurance. A failure to comply may prevent a prospective claimant from pursuing their claim.
