How to find out about claiming for a non fault car accident
Do you need to find out about claiming for a non fault car accident? In January 1935, Charles William Saunders of Green End, Comberton, Cambridge was driving a car in Wembdon Road, towards Minehead and had just passed the Bridgewater Nurseries when the vehicle collided with Evelyn Maud Chorley (14) a domestic servant. She was struck by the car’s near side traffic signal indicator on the back of the head and fell to the ground unconscious.
In trying to avoid Miss Chorley, Mr Saunders swerved to the off-side and in doing so collided with a public gas lamp. Miss Chorley was taken to hospital where she was treated with a wound to the head. It is difficult to ascertain whose fault that accident was. We do not know whether Miss Chorley ventured out in to the road suddenly or whether Mr Saunders had his mind on other things than his driving. However, if you were driving along and a car swerved over to your side of the road because a bee flew up the driver’s nose, if the car hit you, it would be the other driver’s fault.
