How does comparative negligence apply to my car accident case?

When assigning fault to multiple parties in a car accident, the state of Wisconsin follows the modified comparative negligence or 51 percent rule. This rule allows car accident injury victims to recover financial compensation as long they are less than 51 percent responsible for the accident. This means, a victim can be half responsible for the accident and still recover financial compensation.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident and were partially at fault, you may still be able to recover some financial compensation. To learn more about your legal options, contact the Rhinelander car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
