What If I Was Partly to Blame for the Crash?

If you were partially at fault for the accident, you can still seek compensation and make a financial recovery as long as you’re not more than 50 percent at fault. However, your financial recovery will be reduced according to your percentage of liability. So, for example, if a jury determines you were 10 percent at fault for the accident and the jury awards a total of $100,000, your net award would be $90,000.
