Your opponents can either accept complete blame for the accident or they can accept partial blame. This is often referred to us as “Contributory Negligence”. They may blame someone else or they may blame you partially for the accident. We will have to look at the arguments that they present and then discuss this with you and take your instructions as to how you wish to proceed once you have heard our advice.
It is possible to agree a split on liability – this means that your opponents accept part of the blame and you accept part of the blame (or, indeed, if there is more than one defendant, then they each accept part of the blame or any combination of the above). We will advise and assist you if this happens. Once this has all been sorted out, you can move on to the next stage in the claim.
