Seeking Compensation as a Partially At-Fault Driver

Seeking Compensation as a Partially At-Fault Driver

As a partially at-fault driver, you may still be entitled to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs related to your Nebraska car accident. However, this does complicate your case.

If you are partially at fault, you are entitled to receive a percentage of the compensation you would have received if you were not at fault at all.  The amount depends on the percentage of fault assigned to you.  This is referred to as your comparative negligence.

If you are found to be 50% or more negligent, you are not entitled to recover anything. Your damages will be solely your responsibility.

How We Can Help

Do not admit fault or rely on your own perception of whether you caused the accident.  You should seek the informed opinion of a personal injury attorney to decide how to best proceed with your case. Contact Steffens Law Office today to schedule a free, no-obligation case review.
