According to the petition submitted by T Gayathri, wife of S Sugumaran, he was driving his bike along the GST road near Perungalathur on October 9, 2012, when a Haryana-based lorry hit his vehicle and three others.
Sugumaran succumbed at a private hospital.
Denying the allegation, the insurance firm said it was Sugumaran who was responsible for the reckless driving.
The tribunal headed by S Umamaheshwari observed that the accident was due to the rash driving of the lorry driver who was also holding a fake licence.
