Can I still recover my harms and losses even if I am partially at fault?

Yes, under Connecticut law.  In Connecticut we have what is called comparative negligence.  So, this means that if you are partially at fault you can still recover, but you damages are reduced by the percentage of fault attributable to your conduct.  But if you are over 50% at fault you can’t recover.   For example, if the other guy is 85% at fault and you are 15% at fault you can recover but your damages are reduced by 15%.  If you are 51% at fault and the other guy is 49% at fault, then you cannot recover at all.

If you or anyone you know has a question about a car or truck accident on Route 117 in Ledyard, Connecticut , or Groton, Connecticut then contact the car crash lawyers at The Bartinik Law Firm PC, 100 Fort Hill Road, Groton, Connecticut at 860 445 8521 or toll free at 888 717 4211.
