Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. I was involved in an accident which involved three cars. The driver of one of the cars, a woman and a child died in the accident. My opinion is that the deceased caused the accident. However, due to the lack of the presence of witnesses at the scene of the accident and the fact that the third driver does not remember what happened the traffic department resolved to let me be responsible for 40% of the accident and the two other parties were considered to be responsible for 30% of the accident. The reason for my increased responsibility was over speeding according to the traffic department. However, I did not exceed the set speed limit. The judge ruled that all of us should pay blood money and I paid the required amount. My question is: It is compulsory for me to expiate considering that the judge did not mention anything about this? كفارة القتل الخطأ في حادث

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As to what follows: In response to your question, we say:   If you were not negligent and you did not cause an infringement then nothing is due from you. However, if you were negligent or caused an infringement, even to a small degree, then you should expiate.
