Partial Fault Truck Accident - Video
Have you been injured in a truck wreck and feel like your actions are partially to blame? Check out this video about a partial fault truck accident for guidance.
Will being partially at fault for a truck accident affect my injury claim?
In the state of Utah, if you are responsible for a crash, you cannot be compensated for it. However, if you’re less than 50% at fault, and the other party is more than 50% at fault, you’re still entitled to recover damages for their portion of the fault in causing that crash. That’s also true in a motor vehicle crash. If you are 20% at fault, and the trucking company is 80% at fault, you can bring a claim and recover 80% of the damages.
If you have questions about how that works or what needs to be done to make those types of claims, feel free to give our office a call.
