What if I was partially at fault for the incident?
When a person files a personal injury lawsuit, they may lose a certain amount of compensation based on how much their actions contributed to the incident. However, according to Ohio’s comparative negligence laws, a person to blame for only a minor portion of the incident, up to 50%, may still be compensated for their injuries. As long as a person isn’t mostly at fault for the incident, they can still consider a personal injury claim.
If you have been injured because of another person’s negligent actions, but were partially to blame, we may still be able to help you. Speak with a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, today at 513-321-7733 to understand your legal options in this more complex situation.
