Can I still sue if I am partially responsible for the collision? by Patricia Santucci

Yes. Often an accident can be caused by more than one party. It is possible that you might be partially responsible for the collision. For example, if an oncoming vehicle turned left in front of yours as you were proceeding through an intersection, but you were speeding, there could be two drivers responsible for the collision. If you are found to be in partially responsible for the accident, the portion that is found to be your fault will be deducted from your claim.
