Can you please advise me, can company legally deny this accident responsibility. if i can go legally under which act and where i can file the case
If you were employed as a software engineer, you cannot fit into the definition of employee u/s 2(1)(dd) of the Employees Compensation Act,1923 r.w its schedule II and as such you cannot claim any compensation under the Labor Laws. You can seek remedy under the MV Act,1988,
