Before we proceed to discuss in detail various aspects of the subject, we may refer, in brief, to some of the past Reports of the Commission which are relevant to the subject of compensation for accidents caused by the use of motor vehicles. As already stated,1 compensation for injury caused by automobiles in "hit-and-run" cases was the subject-matter of a Report forwarded by the Law Commission several years ago.2 The need for expediting the trial and disposal of claims instituted before Tribunals constituted under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1939, was stressed by the Law Commission in its Report on arrears in courts, dealing, respectively, with trial courts3, and High Courts and other appellate courts.4
