What if My Accident Was Partially My Fault?
It’s important to understand that things are not always as they seem. You may be concerned that you were partially at fault for your brain injury and therefore may be ineligible to seek compensation for your injury. However, the law is a tricky thing. It isn’t always straightforward. For example, even if your accident was totally your fault, if your accident occurred while you were working on a jobsite and you’re eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you won’t be barred from seeking the total amount of compensation to which you’re entitled simply because the accident was your fault. Generally, workers’ compensation benefits are only denied to at-fault parties if they were intoxicated while on the job, purposefully hurt themselves in order to receive benefits, or started an altercation that resulted in injury.
If your injury occurred off the job, you may still be entitled to seek compensation from others partially responsible for your accident. Generally speaking, as long as someone else was “more” at fault for your injuries than you were, our West Palm Beach, FL brain injury lawyer can help you to seek compensation from that person, company, municipality, etc. You may simply be entitled to less compensation than you would be if the accident that caused your injury was wholly another’s fault. The degree of fault assigned to each party is a legal determination. You should try to avoid calculating the amount of fault assigned to each party before you speak with an attorney. Our firm understands how to make knowledgeable determinations about fault and will provide you with all the information you need to know before committing to a plan of legal action or inaction.
