What if I am partially responsible for an accident, do I still need a lawyer?
If you’re partially at fault that doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to recovery. Firstly if the other party is more at fault than under our law that party is responsible for that percentage of your of your recovery but also a lot of times what you might think is your fault might actually be a defect in the product for example of an automobile. A lot of people have thought that they engage that they maybe stepped on the wrong pedal the brake pedal versus the gas pedal when in reality there was a defect in the car that made the car continue on accelerating when they had no intention but the car accelerating. So what you might perceive as your own fault might not be that at all. It might be a defect in the car so, feel free to give us a call at Bailey Javins & Carter. You may find that the wreck isn’t your fault at all it might be the result of a defective product.
