If I am partly at fault in an accident, can I still file a personal injury claim?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

If I am partly at fault in an accident, can I still file a personal injury claim?Personal injury lawsuits are rarely as straightforward as victims would like them to be. They can quickly become exceedingly convoluted and the out-of-court mediation or the full civil trial may find that one or more parties may be partially responsible for the accident. This has led many clients to ask our Los Angeles personal injury lawyer if they can still file a claim even if they were partly at fault for an accident that they were recently involved in.


California is one of the states that will recognize if a party is partially or fully at fault for an accident that has caused an injury. These cases can become very complex and are often going to require a careful inspection of all of the facts in order to deduce which parties are responsible for what amount of damage.

An example of this may be a car accident in which one party was speeding and the other did not turn on their turning single with ample time for other driver’s to react. The driver that was speeding may be found to be 75 percent at fault. Therefore, they will be responsible for 75 percent of the costs of the accident, including the injuries.

No matter if you believe you are at fault or not, you deserve a close look at your accident from our experienced personal injury attorney in Los Angeles. We will be able to help you build a strong case in which you can quickly receive compensation.
