Yes, but the person that you sue their negligence has to exceed yours. So for instance, if a driver is 49 percent at fault and the other driver is 51 percent at fault the 51 percent at fault driver has to pay 51 percent of the other person’s damages. So your percentage of fault reduces your recovery.
