Can a claim be made for injuries resulting from a car accident if negligence is not established?

Since April 2010, negligence does not have to be established if compensation is sought up to $5,000 with an Accident Notification Form. Where death or injury occurs from a “blameless accident” and it involves a vehicle that had insurance cover, it is deemed that the accident resulted from the fault of the owner / driver of that vehicle in the use or operation of that vehicle. Once there is that “fault” a claim can be made and compensation recovered.
