Can I File A Personal Injury Claim If I Am Partially Liable For My Accident?

Can I File A Personal Injury Claim If I Am Partially Liable For My Accident?

Monday, October 27th, 2014

It is not uncommon for personal injury victims to neglect filing a claim if they believe they are partially responsible for the accident. What many Newburgh residents don’t realize though, is that New York is a pure comparative negligence state, which means that even if you are partially liable for your accident, you may still be entitled to damages.

Our experienced Newburgh personal injury attorney has years of experience handling all types of claims under New York law, and he knows how to obtain the facts and evaluate them accordingly. With his professional background, Mr. Rock can assess your case to determine who is really responsible for damages and how much compensation you might be entitled to, even if you are partially liable.

While New York’s personal injury laws do require that each party’s actions are taken into account, awards are determined by the courts based on the percentage of blame, so you can still receive compensation.

It’s important to remember that when it comes to determining liability for a personal injury claim in New York, you should never assume that your involvement nullifies your claim, and you should always allow a professional injury attorney to investigate the details of your accident.

With every personal injury case we accept, Mr. Rock will conduct a thorough investigation of your accident so he can determine liability and build a strong case on your behalf to seek the largest compensation possible.
