Can I Recover Financial Compensation if I Was Partially at Fault?

It is not easy in every personal injury case to establish fault. In many cases, one party is not completely at fault for the accident and ensuing damages. Fortunately, this doesn’t disqualify an injured party from possibly taking legal action and filing a civil lawsuit to recover financial compensation. In the state of Kentucky, which employs a comparative negligence system, injured victims can still take legal action even if they were partially to blame for the accident.

Suffering a serious injury in a car wreck or other accident can be very devastating to your life. Luckily, you don’t have to go through this time alone. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident and you were also partially at fault, contact a Louisville personal injury lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050 to discuss whether you can file a claim.

Comparative Negligence

Comparative negligence laws differ from state to state. The state of Kentucky follows the pure comparative negligence system in which a judge will examine the case and then assign a percentage of blame to each party. In these types of cases, the injured person will be able to claim financial compensation equivalent to the percentage which they were not to blame for the accident.

For example, if one party was found to be 70 percent at fault for the accident and suffered $1,000 in damages, the other party would have to pay 30 percent of the damages, or $300.
