Private Individual Liability
When someone is injured in an accident, they can file a claim against the negligent driver, due to the fact that he was in breach of his duty of care.
If both the claimant and the defendant share the fault for the crash, contributory negligence applies, therefore:
Your share of guilt will affect the compensation you will receive. So if you are 50% at fault for the crash, 50% of the compensation will be deducted.
