When someone is seriously injured in a truck or commercial vehicle accident, sometimes they don’t seek an attorney because they feel that the accident was in some way their own fault. This is something that people are often confused about. In the state of New York, even if you have a part to play, so to speak, in this accident that’s not a bar to your recovery. You’re still entitled to recovery based on the percentage of fault that’s attributable to the truck that caused the accident, with respect to that part of the fault.
If you’re seriously injured in an accident, don’t think you don’t have a right to recovery because you feel you may have done something wrong, too, or feel you may be partly to blame. That could affect your recovery, but that is not a bar to recovery. In many cases, you may be wrong. You may think something was more your fault when in reality, it was more the other person’s fault. It’s important to seek out an experienced attorney who knows how to handle these cases, knows the issues involved, and is going to represent your interests to the fullest.
