Texas is a modified comparative negligence state, which means that your damages will be reduced if a court determines that you were a percentage at fault. The damages will be reduced according to your percentage at fault. For example, if a judge awards you $50,000 in damages and also determines you were 10% at fault, your damages will be reduced by 10%, or $5,000. However, if you are found to be greater than 50% at fault, you will be prevented from recovery.
