Yes. Even if a CT car accident is partly your fault, you will likely be able to receive some compensation for your injuries, but less than full compensation.
Connecticut uses what is known as a modified comparative negligence rule for determining how much compensation you can receive after an CT car accident. In this system, the compensation you receive is reduced by your degree of fault in an accident. For example, if the court determines you are 28% at fault for an accident, you will only be able to recover 72% of your damages. And in Connecticut if the court determines you were 51% or more responsible for your accident, you cannot recover any damages whatsoever.
Determining fault in an accident can be a very complicated matter and requires the work of skilled and experienced personal injury attorneys. And remember that you should never admit fault in an accident, and never provide statements to the other person's insurance company, as these may be used against you.
