Do I have a case if the accident report says I am at fault?

Even if a jury finds that you are partially at fault for an accident, you will not be barred from recovery in most cases. In some cases, you may not actually be at fault under the law even if you think you may have done something wrong. Current laws regarding liability and the recovery of damages are very complicated and the judge and jury must hear all of the evidence to make a proper determination of “fault.” If you or a loved one was involved in an accident that resulted in personal injuries or a death, you may be entitled to a recovery even if you think you may be at fault for the incident. Texas laws may prevent your recovery if a jury determines that you are 51 percent or more at fault for your injury. If you are found to be less than 51 percent at fault, your recovery will be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault. Disputes over comparative fault can be very confusing to many people, and the insurance companies will take advantage of this confusion in an effort to limit how much they pay you. Each case must be evaluated on its own separate facts, and if you want to discuss whether or not you have a case in light of your particular facts, just remember One Call, That’s All.
