Five days after last Friday’s horrific Carenage bus accident, the police are yet to lay any charges.
However the investigation brings to the fore the question of compensation for any loss/losses incurred as a result of the incident.
On Tuesday the GBN explored the possibilities with an expert within the insurance industry, who confirms there may be some consideration for claims being filed by some persons who were aboard the bus.
Insurance companies are guided by the Third Party Risks ordinance.
Group Financial Manager at the Antillean Group, Wayne Nelson, says the third party risk ordinance is designed to cover the innocent party.
Passengers would have to provide Medical records when filing claims.
He further emphasized the need for increased frequency in routine checks to ensure vehicles are fit for use.
The police continue to gather information regarding last Friday’s freak accident.
