If you are in a bicycle accident, you may be able to recover for your injuries even though the accident was partly or even mostly your fault. In most states, as long as you were less than 50% at fault for your accident you may recovery money for your property damage and injuries. However, your recovery will be reduced by the percentage you were at fault.

Some states are what is called “pure comparative fault”, such as California. In states with pure comparative fault laws, you can recovery for your injuries even if you were 90% at fault for the accident. Of course, your recovery will be reduced by 90%. Keep in mind that if you suffered a million dollar injury, you can still recover $100,000.00, which is better than nothing. If you are involved in a bicycle accident, it is usually a good idea to have a consultation with an experienced bicycle lawyer. Keep in mind, your own automobile insurance may provide coverage for you in the event the at fault driver had no or minimal insurance.
