In the aftermath of an accident and injury, it can be difficult to understand who was at fault and what factors caused your injuries. In some cases, an accident could be caused by a number of factors and multiple negligent acts. In the state of Kentucky, lawmakers have created a system of comparative negligence—a way to fairly award compensation in the event that more than one party is at fault for an accident.

How can comparative negligence affect your Kentucky personal injury case? Put simply, you may collect compensation for your injuries and other losses even if you were partially at fault for your accident. For example, if you were involved in a car accident in which you were speeding and another car ran a stop sign, you could still collect damages for a percentage of your losses. If you were found to be 40% at fault and the other driver was found to be 60% at fault, you could get money for 60% of your medical bills and lost wages.

Far too many accident victims never pursue compensation for their injuries because they believe they had a hand in their injury. It is vital to understand that even if you were partially at fault for the injury, you can still receive damages.

The single best way to understand whether you may deserve compensation after an accident and injury is to speak with an experienced attorney. Call Gray & White today and get the answers you need.
