Dear Himanshu,
Whether the claim under the MV Accident Claim Tribunal was dismissed on merits? If so, the claim filed now before the EC Commissioner is barred by the doctrine of Res Judicata.
From India, Salem
Meaning of Res Judicata
Fundamental legal doctrine that, once a lawsuit is decided, the litigant parties are barred from raising the same issue again in the courts (unless material new evidence has become available). They are also barred from raising another issue arising from the same claim or transaction (or a series of claims or transactions) that could have been but was not raised in the decided suit. It is based on the principle that court cases cannot be allowed to go on for ever and must come to an end. Latin for, a thing adjudicated.
Here in this case,Matter of compensation was agitated under the MV act and claim was rejected
Now again filing a case under WCAct will not be acceptable to the court as the case has already been decreed.
Unless off course the person is producing some new material evidence not produced earlier.
