Whats A Non Fault Accident?

Non-fault accidents are those where the other driver caused the accident. When this happens, your insurer will usually reclaim any repair costs from the other driver’s insurance as they are at fault.

If the other driver doesn’t have insurance or you’re in a hit and run accident, your claim might be treated as a fault claim because your insurer can’t recover its costs. However, this depends on the insurer so check your policy for details.
