A non fault car accident is an accident involving a car that does not appear to have been anyone’s fault. This type of accident does indeed occur. However, there are many accidents that may initially appear to be a non fault car accident, but are actually someone’s fault. It is always best to let an expert look at the details of the accident so that they can give an expert opinion on whether anyone can be shown to be at fault. There is a very quick and easy way of accessing this form of expertise. A step by step guide is given below.
Assessing non fault car accident claims – Step 1
Firstly, try to collect as much information about the car accident as you can. This could include the following:
- What were the weather conditions like at the time of the accident?
- What were the road conditions like?
- How many vehicles were involved?
- What was the position of all of the vehicles?
- What manoeuvres were the vehicles trying to make?
- What speeds were the vehicles travelling at?
- Are there any sketches or photographs of the accident scene?
- Are there any witnesses?
Also, keep all details of your injuries and any medical attention that you have received.
