What If You Were Partly At Fault?
In Illinois and Missouri you need not be completely blameless in an accident to recover damages. You should speak with an attorney to determine whether the facts are such that you should proceed to make a claim.
Both Illinois and Missouri adhere to the legal doctrine of comparative negligence under which a person who is partly at fault for an accident can still collect compensation. Courts in this situation determine each driver’s fault as a percentage. The Court assesses damages and reduces an injured party’s damages by their percentage of fault. While this is a fairly complicated process, it is simple to lawyers who are familiar with it.
