Can I recover compensation if I was partially at-fault for a motorcycle accident?

I met with a man last week who was involved in a motorcycle vehicle accident on Jimmie Dyess Parkway. He was wondering whether he could have a motorcycle vehicle claim even if he was partially at fault. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question.

I told him what I will tell you: Georgia is a comparative negligence state. If the other driver is at least 51% at fault, then you have a claim for your damages. Assume your case is worth $100,000 and a jury finds the other driver 80% at fault and you 20% at fault. In that scenario, you would be able to recover $80,000 in your claim.
