Car accidents happen every day and most of the time it gets tricky for either party to identify who is at fault. It can be word against word of who caused the accident, putting one or both parties at fault for covering and splitting the cost of damages. Comparative negligence in a car accident means that more than one driver acted in the wrong. After the accident, both parties will receive the amount of damage they must be responsible to fix. If you are injured in a car accident, and the other driver is found to be more at fault, you are still able to receive some type of payment. However, you would receive less money if more damage is assigned to you.
When you are accused at any time for being at fault for a car accident it is very important to find an attorney. Having one will help you receive as little backlash as possible. Insurance companies of the other drivers may claim that you were more at fault and lie about what happened. This could end up leaving you with no payment and responsibility of paying for all your injuries.
