Partial Fault Accidents

An injury compensation claim for a car accident can still be made if you were partially at fault or even partially responsible for your actions leading to an injury. This does mean that the total compensation you would receive will be a reduced amount.

At the time of a car accident, it can seem easy to determine liability. However, there are several legislations in place that can conclude fault upon a less obvious person. Driving under the influence of alcohol can void car insurance which can complicate liability when a third party may have caused an injury. For things that you are not sure about, we can advise you on your personal circumstances and the likely ramifications of the accident.

Insurance companies have an interest in who is to blame for the accident. They will often have to pick up the bill for the repairs to all involved cars and the payout for the injury compensation claims. The bill can be shared between the companies if liability is split where the victim may be considered as ‘partial fault’. The consequences of this can affect your insurance status and limit the accident compensation you accept. We will give you more information if you are affected as the conditions vary from insurance companies to where the accident took place.

What Happens If My Car Door Is Hit?

Have you ever had your car door open and a passing vehicle hit it? Who would be at fault for the damage?

Well it does depend on how it happened. It is fair to say that car drivers should be driving with due care and attention, which allows them enough time to manoeuvre around or brake. This line of thought would appear to blame the driver if their car collides with an open door.

From another perspective, it is the responsibility of the driver or even the passenger to check that it is safe to open their car door. It is applicable when you exit the car, put goods in or help a child into the vehicle. The Highway Code in section 239 indicates that you should be aware of other road users and cyclists before opening your vehicle door to avoid hitting anything.

From this point of view, it is argued that opening a car door without checking first will likely to put you at fault if you hit a passing car. Yet, in a scenario where there is little or no traffic in the vicinity, a person can reason that a driver should be able to see a car door open had he been driving with due care and attention. As part of road safety, there is an expectation for drivers to use hazard perception skills as learnt in their driving lessons and test which anticipates for hazards such as opening doors.

In a car accident claim, it can often be difficult to prove what actually happened without an independent witness. One party may claim that you hit their motorcar or transportation without checking the surroundings or you may insist that the driver of a passing vehicle should have seen the hazard had he been paying attention. These cases are better dealt with the use of witnesses or where possible, a CCTV recording.

Determining Fault For An Accident

For clarification, it is important to understand that the ‘at fault’ person refers to the person that caused the accident or was responsible to the cause of it. The ‘no fault’ person is someone who is not responsible for the car accident at all. The ‘partial fault’ category is in between the former two and is applied where both parties are at fault, or in some cases, where it is difficult to establish who is ‘at fault’, both drivers may be required to share the fault.

As you can see from the extensive effects of determining fault, we recommend not admitting fault at the time of the accident. It can affect your 100% car accident compensation claim and may affect your future car insurance premiums. It is highly likely that other external factors may have influenced your road accident which can be recalled at a later stage after the initial shock and can be used to strengthen your personal injury case. Even an eyewitness’ statement can provide a useful clue to who was responsible.

The driver who did not act according to the law is at fault. Generally, this can be applied to a simple case but it is not always clear in a more serious accident where there are several factors to consider before determining fault. We take it seriously should you be involved in a road traffic accident and will consider all the evidence needed to build your case to recover your losses and gain compensation for your injuries.
