‘I am Partly At-Fault for an Accident. Can I Still Make a Claim?’

Yes.  In Massachusetts, as long as you are not more than 50% responsible for a car crash, then you may still make a claim.  However, the amount of your settlement will be reduced by the percentage of fault you have for the accident.  Therefore, if you are considered 50% at-fault for the crash, and your case is worth $10,000.00, then you would recover $5000.00, because of the fact that you were 50% at-fault for the accident.
