What if I was partially at fault for the crash? Can I still be compensated?

Generally speaking, yes, you can still recover some damages after a car accident even if you are found to be partially at fault. The amount will be determined according to your percentage of blame for the accident. For example, if you suffer $10,000 worth of losses due to a car accident but are found to be 20% to blame for the crash, you may still be able to recover $8,000 worth of damages (or $10,000 less 20%). However, if you are found to be 51% or more at fault, you will not be able to recover any money.
