There are some auto accidents where both drivers are partially at fault. In Vermont you can still receive money if you are no more than 50% at fault. If you are 51% at fault you will recover nothing. Your damages are reduced by the amount of your comparative negligence.

For example if your claim is worth $10,000 you would recover $5,000 if you were 50% at fault. In the case noted below it appears that both drivers were partially at fault so they might be able to recover half of their damages from each other’s insurance company. If you have own questions about your auto accident case please call David Polow at 802-888-7707 for a free consultation.
