Securing Compensation For Victims Who Are Partially Responsible For Causing An Accident
While many motor vehicle accidents are caused by one person’s negligence, there are situations in which both drivers share blame for a crash. If you believe that you are partially at fault for a collision, it is a mistake to assume that you cannot receive compensation for your injuries.
Under Minnesota’s modified comparative negligence law, drivers are eligible to recover damages when they are less than 50 percent responsible for the crash. In Vadnais Heights, The Cody Law Group has the skill necessary to handle complex personal injury claims for individuals and families needing financial assistance after a severe motor vehicle collision.
What You Need To Know About Modified Comparative Negligence Laws
Before you may file a claim against the other driver, you will need to file a claim with your own auto insurance company. If your expenses cannot be covered by your personal injury protection insurance, you may be eligible to pursue a comparative negligence claim.
When you consult with our attorneys about your accident claim, we will study the circumstances leading up to your collision and review your medical records. In order to qualify to receive a payout for your injuries, you must prove:

- That the accident caused a severe disability, led to a life-changing injury, disfigurement or death
