I did not look properly when I pulled out from a stop sign and was hit by a truck. The police say I am partially responsible for the accident. Nonetheless, I was badly injured. Am I still able to recover damages?

Yes, you are still able to recover damages even if you are partially responsible for the accident. In general, you are entitled to a percentage of damages recovered. The percentage of damages recovered is determined by the circumstances of the accident.

An example would be if you were deemed to be 30 percent responsible for the collision, and there was a $1 million in damages, you might be able to recover $700,000. However, if you are deemed to be more than 50 percent responsible (51 percent and above) you may not be able to recover compensation.
