Wisconsin follows a fault system when it comes to car crashes. This means that the person at fault for the accident has financial responsibility for covering expenses such as your medical expenses, lost income, and property damage.
Wisconsin also follows a partial or modified comparative negligence law. This means you can be awarded compensation even if you are found partially at fault for the accident, as long as you are less than 50 percent at fault. If you are more than 50 percent at fault, however, you cannot recover at all.
