When determining fault in a car accident, California operates under the idea of pure comparative negligence, which means you are allowed to seek damages from the other driver, even if you were mostly at fault. Pure comparative negligence allows an at-fault party to recover as little as 1 percent of their compensation for an accident, as opposed to modified comparative negligence where there is a cap on the amount the at-fault party can be awarded.
