Can I still make a personal injury claim if I was partly responsible?

You can still make a personal injury claim even if you are partly responsible for the accident or for the extent of your injuries.  

If the defendant can prove that your injuries were more serious as a result of your ‘contributory negligence’, then you will have a percentage of your compensation deducted. The reduction is not based on your responsibility for the accident, but on the extent to which your injuries were made worse as a result of your actions.
