Answer: Compensation if the accident was your fault depends on the laws of your state. Which driver is responsible for the accident is important for compensation. However, you may still be able to recover the costs of your injuries, even if the accident was partially your fault. In that case, you will have to show that the other driver was more responsible for the accident than you were and you will have to reduce the amount of costs you can recover by the amount that you were responsible.
