Can I File A Claim If Accident Was Partly My Fault?
Generally, yes, but the amount of money you can recover may be reduced. If your case goes to trial, a jury will determine what percentage of the accident was your fault, and your recovery will be reduced accordingly. For instance, if you were found to be 20% at fault for the accident, you will recover only 80% of the money you otherwise would have won. However, in Indiana, if you were found to be fifty-one per cent or more at fault, you would get nothing in money damages.
