Can you recover against an insurance company, if you are partially at fault for an accident?"
Yes, you can.
There is something called comparative negligence. What that means is, the insurance company is going to look at the negligence of the other driver and your negligence, and then determine what percentage they believe each of you is at fault.
In the event the other driver is at least fifty percent at fault for the accident, you can recover damages. However, in the event that you’re at twenty percent fault for the accident, your damages are going to be reduced by that percentage figure.
Be careful immediately following an accident. Do not make statements to the insurance company. They will try to use what you say, against you, to make that comparative negligence number against you larger.
