During the month of August, I am addressing myths that we hear from clients throughout their cases. Kind of my own legal myth busters. Today’s myth is:
Everyone is at least a little at fault:
This is the greatest insurance story out there. They on the one hand fight the liability of the person responsible to the very end, and at the same time get people to accept that they are 10-25% at fault for just being there. The law has no such requirement. It is simply a tool for insurance companies to taint juries and to reduce property damage payments.
