It is not uncommon for the insurance company to argue that a personal injury client is partially to blame for causing his or her own injuries. Most of the time, this argument is bogus, and can be refuted with a good investigation. However, there are times when it is possible that a jury could find that the injured plaintiff was partially to blame in causing the accident. This is especially true in slip and fall cases, where a jury may find that the plaintiff was not properly watching where he or she was going. Even if you are partially at fault, you still may have a strong case.
