How does comparative negligence apply to my motorcycle accident case?
Not every motorcycle accident case clearly establishes a defendant who was 100 percent at fault. There are many cases in which both parties were partially responsible for the accident. The state of Wisconsin follows the modified comparative fault, or 51 percent rule. A judge will first determine each party’s level of fault. A plaintiff can recover damages as long his or her level of fault does not reach 51 percent.
