What Happens if the Injured Party is at Partial Fault in a Accident?
The recovery is reduced by the percentage of fault that was found to be on their part by the jury at trial.
If it’s likely that the plaintiff or injured person is partly at fault, this will affect any settlement as well.
By no means should you avoid calling an attorney because you feel you might be partly at fault.
Even if you are at fault for a percentage of the accident, you still may be entitled to some damages.
