Can I Sue Even if I Caused the Accident?

Before any notion of awards can be considered, a person’s involvement in the accident or incident must first be determined. As few accidents occur entirely because of another person, Colorado uses what is known as a comparative negligence system. Under comparative negligence, an injured individual cannot collect compensation if their mistakes were the major cause for the accident. This is determined according to percent of blame, meaning that anyone bearing more than 50 percent of fault for the accident cannot claim compensation. Otherwise, amounts are given according to the individual’s level of fault.
