A non-fault accident claim is where someone makes an insurance claim or independent accident claim for a road traffic accident that was caused by someone else’s careless or reckless driving.
What to say after a road accident
It is advisable not to admit that you may be at fault at the scene of an accident. The circumstances of an accident can be affected by many different things, you may be distressed and/or suffering from shock and may not thinking clearly enough to consider them at the time.
It’s better to let the police accident investigators consider all the evidence before thinking about admitting liability.
If you are able and it is safe to do so – take photos of the positions of vehicles and note speeds, directions, weather conditions in a diagram soon afterwards while it is fresh in your mind.
If you do admit anything at the scene, bear in mind that someone could quote you in any possible resulting court case, and it will be both difficult and 'suspicious' to suddenly change your story later. You may also have problems with any insurance or compensation claims you may wish to make, leaving you without a car and possibly facing some large repair bills.
