Do you have a case?

Can I still recover compensation if the accident was my fault in an auto accident case?

If the evidence shows that the plaintiffm is less than fifty percent at fault with regard to the accident yes a plaintiff can recover for injuries and damages however if the jury finds when looking at the totality of the injuries and damages that the plaintiffs conduct was over fifty percent responsible for his own or her own injuries than the plaintiff cannot recover that’s called comparative fault as an example if a plaintiff is injured and suffered one hundred thousand dollars worth ofndamages but a jury finds them thirty percent responsible for the accident or their injuries then their total recovery is seventy thousand dollars that’s how comparative fault works in Illinois.
