If I’m partially at fault for an accident, can I still sue?
Claimants in Michigan may be able to pursue a personal injury claim if they have been injured by another person but are partially at fault for the accident. According to Michigan’s “Modified Comparative Fault – 51% Bar” rule, a party who is 51% or less at fault can pursue compensation. However, this rule does reduce the number of economic and non-economic damages that a partially at fault claimant can be awarded.
