No-Fault Insurance means you deal with your own insurance company for a claim, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. This means you can be reimbursed without waiting for legal responsibility to be decided for most types of injuries.
Fault is still assigned, even though we use the term no-fault insurance. Insurance companies estimate the degree of fault assigned to each driver as it affects premiums. In Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and PEI, this is based on fault charts or rules, to help keep decisions fair and consistent.*
