If you have been involved in an accident for which you share a portion of the responsibility, you may still be entitled to some compensation under New Jersey comparative negligence laws. Jersey City car accident attorney Anthony Carbone will investigate your accident, establish the liability of all parties, and fight to get you the compensation you are due.
Understanding Comparative Negligence
In the state of New Jersey, you are able to file a personal injury lawsuit providing your behavior was not a greater contributing factor to your accident than that of the other parties involved. This means that even if you were 50 percent responsible for an accident, you may still seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering.
However, comparative negligence laws are complex and you will need an experienced car accident attorney on your side to ensure you receive the compensation you are due. Mr. Carbone will evaluate your case for free to help you determine all that you may be entitled to.
