Non fault claims and no fault accident claims

If you're looking to make a claim for an accident that wasn't your fault we can help. In the experience of our personal injury solicitors people tend to look at non fault accident claims in one of two ways:

  • The accident happened it was no fault of yours and somebody else is clearly to blame,
  • It would initially appear that no one else is directly at fault, either.

It was no fault of yours and somebody else is clearly to blame

If your accident claim fits within this category, then we are highly likely to have a specific page dealing with the sort of unfortunate incident that has happened to you. Check out our "Personal Injury Claims" page, which you can access from the "Legal Services For You" page to find the right service for you. Alternatively, you can contact us for advice.

It appears that no one is at fault and was just an accident

Following the incident that caused your injury, you may have searched online for help to try and work out if you could a no fault compensation claim. However, from what you have been able to find out, it looks to you as if no one is actually to blame. While you may think that your injury was just a freak accident, it may have been caused or contributed to by the negligence of another. For example if you were injured on a public footpath or highway, the local council have a responsibility to ensure that these areas are properly maintained in a reasonable condition. If it can be proved that they are in breach of their duty of care to the person that was injured, then a claim may possibly made against the local authority.

We help been able to help many people who have come to us to with this type of query. Call us on 08000 93 00 94 and one of our experts will be pleased to talk through the circumstances of the incident with you and provide advice as to your possible options, at no cost to you.

What to do after an accident that was not your fault?

Much depends about the nature and extent of the injuries that you suffer in the accident and what type of accident it was. However, ensuring that you get medical attention for your injuries is a high priority. If your accident occurred on the road contact the police to assist in making the area safe and to help with recovery. If your accident occurred in a public place (such as a shopping centre), ensure customer services are informed to deal with the potential hazard. Then seek specialist legal advice on whether you can make a non fault accident claim for your injury.

If you are looking to make a claim for accident compensation doesn't seem to fit within one of our specific accident or injury advice pages, don't despair; we're always ready to see if we can help you. Call us on 08000 93 00 94 and one of our specialist solicitors will be happy to help.

No Fault Car Accident Claims

It may be that you were involved in a collision with another vehicle but you believe that it was simply an accident or in other words, 'just one of those things' i.e. that neither you nor the other driver is to blame and are content to leave it at that.

However, if you were injured, it may still worth talking to us as we have a great deal of experience in establishing liability following a road accident if you've been injured, you are entitled to compensation if the other driver can be shown to have been at fault either wholly or even just partly to blame. In particular, should it later turn out that your injuries are worse than was first thought or they take longer to recover from, than was expected by the doctors, then you will be glad that you decided to pursue a personal injury claim, even if the other party was, for example, only 50% to blame. In that scenario, you would still receive injury compensation of 50% of what your claim would have been worth if the other person had been totally at fault for the accident.

Another possible scenario is that your accident may have been due to potholes or other road defects, which may due to a failure by the council or local authority to properly maintain the roads. If it can be proved that that is the case and that the council failed in its duty of care, then you may still have a claim for accident injury compensation.

Visit our road accident claims page and tell us about what has happened. We will provide you with non-fault car accident advice and let you know whether you can make a claim.

No Fault Fall Claims

If you trip and fall in a shopping centre, entertainment venue or any other privately owned premises, the owner of those premises may have a responsibility for your care. Sometimes it can be very difficult to establish if anyone else is to blame for a trip or fall, but we're expert in doing just that, which is why you should talk to us about what happened. Contact us for a free, no obligation chat, or visit our slip, trip and fall claim page.

No Fault Claims that may be Criminal Injury

In some criminal injury claims your assailant was unknown and remains unknown. The attack was no fault of your own, someone is clearly to blame, but no one knows who that is. You probably feel stuck, but it can still be possible to make a criminal injury claim, or claim assault compensation. We'll also be able to tell you about the different fee arrangements that can apply to this sort of claim.
