Can I Still Recover If I Was Partially at Fault?

If you were jaywalking when you were hit, you might wonder whether you can still successfully sue the driver. Before you dismiss your claim as futile, meet with a personal injury attorney to discuss the specifics, as there are situations in which you can still recover even if you contributed to the accident. This is due to our State’s law of comparative negligence.  The comparative negligence doctrine entitles you to pursue damages even if you contributed to your accident  your damages will simply be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault. For example, if you were 50% responsible for your accident and the liable party was 50% responsible, you can recover 50% of your total damages.   Our attorneys understand the laws impacting injured pedestrians and we have a track record of success pursuing favorable outcomes for our clients. We are equipped to negotiate with insurance adjusters to minimize your percentage of fault and to help you walk away with the compensation you need to be made whole.
