Do I Need a Car Accident lawyer if the Car Accident Is Partly My Fault?

June 19th, 2018

Has this happened to you? You are injured in a car crash and the insurance person you finally reach tells you that the crash was partly your fault!  You are not so sure and you have medical expenses piling up. Should you consult with a top personal injury lawyer? Here are 3 reasons why the answer is a resounding “yes”!

  1. Auto Insurance Companies Act In Their Financial Interests, Not Yours

Insurance companies are businesses that fight to protect profits by reducing the value of injury claims or denying them altogether. At Bottaro Law, we work for personal injury victims, not big corporations. We do not trust insurance companies to offer the compensation you deserve, and neither should you.

  1. Even If You Are Partly At Fault, You May Still Be Entitled To Compensation

If an accident is partially your fault, you can still get some help that you need to cover the damages. Rhode Island is a “pure comparative negligence” state, meaning that even though the accident might partially be the driver’s fault, they can still recover damages from another at-fault party. However, based on the percentage of your fault in the accident, damages will be reduced.  If this was a Massachusetts auto accident, the rules of recovering damages are slightly different. Massachusetts is known as a “modified” comparative fault state. This means that a driver can only recover damages in a crash as long they are less than 50 percent at fault for the accident.
