Who is At Fault in a Car Accident?
While the at-fault party in some car accidents is very clear, most cases are rather ambiguous, with fault or partial fault shared amongst more than one driver or entity. In these cases, West Virginia’s comparative negligence (or 50% rule) system applies. You are entitled to recover damages if the other motor vehicle operator is 50% or more at fault. However, the amount of compensation that you are entitled to is reduced by the percentage of fault that is actually attributed to your actions, or lack thereof. Notably, failure to wear a seatbelt is not considered an act of negligence. A jury will decide the percentage if the case proceeds to trial. In some cases a third party, such as a vehicle manufacturer or road engineer, may also share blame for the accident.
