What Happens if You Are Partially At Fault for your Motorcycle Accident?

Posted by Dan Kann | Dec 07, 2020 | 0 Comments

Southern California motorcycle riding has become increasingly popular since the pandemic hit and you can understand why—PCH and other open roadways offer a momentary but much-needed escape for many riders. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are also up. Because of the open nature of a bike, these crashes almost always end in injuries for the rider that can result in big medical, bills, missed work and other unplanned expenses.

As a Ventura motorcycle accident lawyer, we know how devastating and confusing the time after a crash can be—after you take care of your physical health, be sure to give Kann California Law Group a call to learn about your legal options.

California Comparative Negligence Standard

Whether it was speeding, not wearing a helmet or some other activity that helped contribute to your accident, many riders have this same question: Can I still file a lawsuit if I am partially responsible for causing my motorcycle accident?

Yes you can. And your case can still be worth a lot of money!

Ventura County and all of California is a comparative negligence state which means that even if you played a role in a personal injury or wrongful death accident, you can still file a winning lawsuit for the percentage of the accident you did not cause. Put differently, if your Ventura motorcycle accident case is worth $100,000 but you are found 50% responsible for causing it, you can still get $50,000--- no small amount of money.

As you can probably guess, when you play a role in causing an accident the case becomes significantly more complicated which is one of the many reasons you want to make sure you are working with an experienced Ventura motorcycle accident lawyer. My goal as your motorcycle lawyer is to argue down your role and of course work to argue up the value of your case.
