Another important concept in Texas personal injury law is that of “shared fault.” This term means exactly what it sounds like — both parties may “share” responsibility for the accident that caused the injury. As long as the injured party is found to be less than 50% responsible for the accident, they may still receive compensation for their injury. However, their compensation will be reduced to reflect how much they were found to be at fault. If, on the other hand, the injured party is found to be more than 50% at fault, they cannot claim compensation from the other party.
