One of the questions that we get a lot of times is what if the police report is not 100 percent favorable to me? Well, here we deal with that issue almost every day on many of our cases. And it’s not always going to be the case that the officer who hasn’t personally witnessed the accident is going to be able to assess 100 percent liability on one party or another. That can change if there’s perhaps an independent eyewitness that the officer is able to speak to

But the fact that you may be partially responsible for an accident does not mean you don’t have a claim. It just means that we have to deal with the insurance company and figure out to what percentage each party is at fault, and then the ultimate damages would be allocated accordingly.
