What If I Was Partially At Fault For The Accident?

Just because you were partially at fault for an accident does not mean you do not have a right to seek compensation. To protect your rights, do not discuss fault after an accident and talk to an attorney as soon as possible. At The Keating Firm LTD., we tenaciously fight for any amount of compensation you deserve, even if you share liability for what happened.

According to Ohio's comparative negligence law, individuals who are partially liable for a car accident may still have grounds to seek financial compensation. Our lawyers will fight to build a strong case on your behalf and vigorously pursue a beneficial outcome for you. We serve the entire Columbus metro area.

You May Have Valid Grounds For A Civil Claim

In order to seek compensation for your injuries in an accident, you must be able to prove you were not more than 50 percent at fault for the accident. Our lawyers will carefully evaluate your accident, gather important evidence and work diligently for the recompense you need to get better and move forward with your life.

The amount of compensation that could be available to you depends on your share of liability in the accident. Your recovery will be reduced by any percentage of fault that is assigned to you. For example, if you were 20 percent at fault, your award will be reduced by 20 percent.

Our experience in complex accident claims and close knowledge of personal injury law allows to build a strong case of liability against the other driver—and to minimize any percentage of liability that can be assigned to you. Instead of making assumptions about your case or your legal options, you will find it beneficial to seek a complete evaluation of your case and explanation of your legal options from our lawyer.

A car accident can change your life in an instant. If you think you have a valid claim to compensation, it might be beneficial to act quickly to preserve evidence. These cases may be time-sensitive, but our team will immediately start working on your case and fighting to defend your interests.
