Can You Sue Someone For Causing An Accident?

Yes.

In fact, you can sue someone for partially causing a car accident.

For example, if you don’t see a car coming and pull out from a stop sign too soon and are t-boned, you may be at fault for the accident; however, if the other vehicle was speeding and, apart for the speeding the accident would not have occurred, you can still sue the speeding vehicle for its portion of fault.

Keep in mind though, that the amount of money you recover will be diminished based on your own percentage of fault. So, if the total value of your case is $25,000 but you were 50% at fault for the accident, you would recover 50% of the award or $12,500.
