Being involved in an accident can be a traumatic process that takes many months – or years – to recover from. It can feel especially harrowing if the crash happened with no fault of your own.
Motor vehicle accidents often transpire fast making it very difficult to know which party acted negligently. People are often left confused and unaware of their rights after suffering a no-fault accident.
If you have been the victim of a car crash that was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation.
If you believe the crash occurred due to negligence on another driver’s behalf, then you may have grounds to make a no win no drama claim. Your car accident claim can involve recompense of material (monetary) losses.
These losses may include immediate losses due to damage, written off vehicles and medical bills. They may also consider future losses, such as loss of income from being unable to work or conduct business.
Examples of negligent driving behaviour include:
- Being under the influence of illegal drugs
- Using a mobile phone while driving
- Driving with excessive speed
- Changing lanes or turning without signalling
- Eating or drinking behind the wheel
- Being under the influence of alcohol
- Driving while fatigued
