Indiana is considered a comparative fault state, meaning that you’ll need to establish that the other party was more than 50 percent responsible for the accident. If this is not possible, then the other driver is not legally required to compensate you. However, if it’s determined that you were 20 percent responsible for the accident and the other party was 80 percent at-fault, then you will only be able to collect 80 percent of the final award. Auto accident settlement negotiations can quickly become complex, so contact a trusted personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss the specifics of your case.
