Can I be partially at fault for a bicycle accident?


Sometimes we get questions regarding if potential clients have a right to file a claim for a bicycle accident claim in New York if the bicyclist is partially at fault. The answer is of course. In New York state, it’s a comparative negligence state, so either person in an accident, whether it be with a car or a bicycle, may have a claim even if it’s shared liability.Partial Fault Bike Accidents
In fact, it’s not uncommon for there to be some shared liability unless the accident is so clear cut like a rear-end accident. Both sides will tend to argue some percent of fault on both operators. The answer is absolutely, but your damages in the end will be diminished by whatever percent of fault you may share.
