This means that the plaintiff can also be found guilty for the accident but he is allowed to claim compensation even if he is up to 99% at fault. However, the total settlement amount will be diminished: a plaintiff who is 40% at fault will only recover 60% of his losses (whether medical expenses or property damage) sustained in the accident. It is also useful to know that some cases, such as dog bite injuries, have a strict liability rule.
