What Can I Do After a Vehicle Accident?
There are approximately 18,510 vehicle accidents per DAY in the US (Source). Each state has their own laws for handling vehicle accidents. Utah adopts the comparitive negligence law. This means a plaintiff can still recover damages in a personal injury claim even if he or she is partially responsible for the accident. However, the 50% limit means that the plaintiff’s fault cannot exceed the defendant’s. If the plaintiff is 50% or more at fault for a claimed accident, the plaintiff cannot recover any damages. If the plaintiff is less than 50% at fault, he or she simply loses a portion of the case award equal to his or her fault percentage.
