How is fault determined in a Wisconsin auto accident case?

Frequently Asked Question Video for Wisconsin Personal Injury

Fault is determined in a Wisconsin auto accident case by what we call comparative negligence. Ultimately a jury decides the relative fault of each party. Each party is under duty of ordinary care and the jury will determine what is a substantial cause of the accident and then assign a percentage to each. As long as you are less at fault than the other driver, you can receive damages.
