Q
If the car accident was partly my fault, do I still have a case?

A

If  you were partly at fault for the car accident, in Virginia you do not have a case. Virginia's "contributory negligence" law bars anyone whose own carelessness contributed to an injury from being able to recover for her injuries.

However, you should speak to an experienced injury lawyer who can determine whether you were, in fact, partly to blame for the accident.
