If you are not 100% at fault in the accident and your state has comparative negligence, then the other driver's insurance may pay part of your claim.
For example, if you are 60% at fault in the accident, you can recover 40% of your damages monetary compensation.  This is only if your state uses comparative negligence in determining liability.
This is only an example and the actual percentage of liability will probably be different figures based on the facts in your case, if your state has comparative negligence.
