Yes, in Illinois we have a law called comparative fault and what the jury is instructed to do is look at one hundred percent of the fault that’s related to an accident or injury and determine percentage-wise how much the plaintiff’s conduct played a role so when they look at a hundred percent of the fault if the plaintiff has found over fifty percent responsible for their own injury they do not recover anything if the jury finds
the plaintiff is less than fifty percent at fault the recovery for the plaintiff is reduced by their percentage of fault.
