If I’m an injured motorist, and I wasn’t solely responsible for the accident, what happens?
A certain amount of comparative fault is determined associated to you and the amount that you are not at fault would be a percentage deduction from your damages.
For instance, based on your medical bills, your physical, your pain and suffering and lost wages, and damages is $100,000, and that’s without considering comparative negligence for who is at fault.
If you are found to be 25% at fault they would reduce the amount of damages by the amount you’re at fault. So, an example of $100,000 in damages, and you’re 25% at fault that means that you would reduce $100,000 by $25,000, and you’d be able to get damages up to $75,000.
