In Illinois, you may still be able to recover compensation in a motorcycle accident case if you were partly responsible for the crash. Comparative negligence is a principle that says you can still recover money, but that monetary award will be reduced by the percentage of your fault. Therefore, if you were 10 percent responsible for causing the crash, any monetary award would be reduced by 10 percent.
Whether you think you may have played a role in the crash or are sure that you had no part, you may have a case in Chicago or the surrounding areas.
