What if my Teenager Was Partially Responsible For The Collision?

In many automobile accident cases both drivers are at least partially responsible for the crash. In some instances, one driver may be more to blame than the other person. Washington state law gives a percentage of money awarded to the person injured depending on how much of the accident was their fault. This is known as comparative negligence. For example, if your son or daughter is involved in a Seattle car accident and is found to be at least 10% responsible for the crash, they would receive 90% of the total compensation. This percentage is determined by the judge of your case.
