Washington follows the doctrine of comparative negligence to assign blame to multiple parties in personal injury claims. That means you, the plaintiff, can be found to share fault for your injuries.
Under this rule, if you win $100,000 but are 10 percent to blame for your injuries, then you’ll get $90,000. Your 10 percent of the blame is subtracted from your award. The upside is that you can still recover some compensation even if you share a substantial portion of the blame with the defendant.
