Actus Dei Nemini Facit Injuriam Law and Legal Definition

Actus dei nemini facit injuriam is a Latin legal maxim. This means that an act of God does no injury to anyone. In other words, no one is responsible for inevitable accidents. Actus dei nemini facit injuriam is also known as Act of God. When an event is caused by the effect of nature without interference from humans it can be called an act of God. The event foreseen cannot be considered as act of God. If nature’s act was foreseeable and a person’s negligence led to an accident, the jury considers the extend of negligence before giving verdict.
