Comparative negligence in Kentucky is the system used to determine who was at fault in an accident and how much in damages can be recovered. This can significantly affect the outcome of your Louisville accident claim.
Here are 3 ways that comparative negligence in Kentucky may affect your Louisville accident claim:
- each party involved in the accident is assigned a percentage of fault;
- you are allowed to recover damages even if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident; and
- the amount of damages that you are entitled to receive will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
While it can be good news that even if you contributed to the accident you will still be able to receive compensation, it can also mean a significant reduction if you are found to be largely at fault.
To increase your chances at a settlement that is fair and full, it is best to have legal help. A Kentucky personal injury attorney can help put together the necessary evidence to prove someone else's negligence in your accident.
