The answer depends on the overall strength of your case. If the case is not strong, it may not be worthwhile to file a lawsuit. However, if the defendant was clearly negligent, you may still have a case, even if you are partially at fault. Settlements in such cases are determined by the percent of fault attributed to the defendant. If you’re found 40 percent at fault and the defendant is found 60 percent at fault and you win your case, your settlement will be approximately 60 percent of what it would have been if you had no fault at all. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to answer your questions and determine whether you have a case.
