Case 7b - Position of vehicles undetermined

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

Portion of liability:

This case must apply wherever the position on the roadway in respect to the centerline is undetermined or if it cannot be established that a specific vehicle was travelling to its left of the centerline. The mere fact of skidding, when other precise information is lacking, is not sufficient to establish that a vehicle was encroaching on the centerline.


Applying the Direct Compensation Agreement:

  • Vehicles X and Y are each 50% responsible: the insured will be indemnified for half of the amount of his damage if policy only covers civil liability (section A of the Contract). He will be indemnified for the other half of the damage if his policy also covers collision (section B of the Contract). The insured will have to pay 50% of his deductible.

For more information, contact your insurer.
