Yes. Even if you are partially at fault for causing an accident, the law in New York state still allows you to bring a claim against another party who was also at fault. The legal term for this is called “comparative fault”. Under this theory, you may still recover at least some portion of compensation for your injuries. If the truck driver claims you were at fault, it is the truck driver’s burden to prove that you were negligent and that your negligence contributed to causing the crash.
