Clients often ask, can I still recover benefits if I was partially at fault? The answer is yes. New York looks at it more on a basis of percentages of fault. Even if you’re more than 50% at fault, even if you were technically 90% at fault, that is not a bar from you seeking recovery for the injuries that you sustained. It’s important to seek out counsel to weigh these things, to figure out where the fault lies.
That isn’t always so clear. Even though it may be clear to you, it’s not always so clear because there are often rules and regulations that maybe would’ve prevented the accident had the defendant followed. It’s important to understand that, even if you feel the accident is even in large part your fault, you still have a right to recovery and there is no bar for you recovering money in those settings.
