What If You Were Partly Responsible for Your Accident?
Sometimes we will play a role in causing our own accidents. If someone else was also to blame, you can still get the money you deserve. However, your award may be reduced slightly. California follows the rule of comparative fault. Anyone who contributes to an accident can be responsible for damages. The smaller your contribution to the accident, the more money you will be able to recover. Our attorneys will downplay your role in the accident and prove that others are also at fault.
Here’s an example. You were involved in a car accident and suffered $10,000 in damages. You were speeding at the time of the crash. The other driver was texting and not paying attention. An investigation finds that the accident was mostly the other driver’s fault. However, you share 20 percent responsibility for the crash because you were speeding. As a result, your financial award will be reduced by 20 percent. Instead of recovering all $10,000 in damages, you can get $8,000. If the other driver was hurt in the crash, you may also be on the hook for 20 percent of his bills.
