TRANSCRIPT: We call that comparative negligence. Yes, you still could make a recovery for motorcycle accident that is partly your fault. However the percentage of your fault will probably be reduced from the value of your case. So for instance, if it's determined that you're 10 percent at fault for the accident, 10 percent of the value of your case will be reduced on the award or the recovery. So, the percentage of your fault will be deducted from the value of your case.
