In a recent NSW case, a car accident occurred when a tree fell onto a car causing personal injury to the driver. In this case, no action by the driver contributed in any way to the car accident, and it was found to be a blameless car accident.

But in another car accident case, the driver’s actions to avoid a collision with a dog on the road, although involuntary or inevitable, were a direct cause of a collision with the rear of a parked truck.

The Judge in this case decided the car accident was not blameless, as the driver’s conduct contributed to the car accident.

These cases demonstrate that the “blameless car accidents” provisions do not apply to every single-vehicle car accident where there is no fault on the part of the driver, but only where the driver’s conduct has not contributed to the car accident occurring.
