I'm involved in a personal injury case. I may be at fault. Does this prevent me from recovery? Does it matter how much at fault I was versus how much at fault the other person was? Many personal injury cases run into this situation, otherwise known as comparative or contributory negligence.
A 2003 study by the NHTSA also concluded that in multiple vehicle accidents the motorcyclist was less at fault than the other driver 80% of the time! What this tells us is that bikers traveling around this weekend are most at risk from local drivers and not their own behavior.
