Even if you were partly at fault for the Road Traffic Accident you may still be able to recover compensation however it may be reduced to take into account the amount you were to blame.

This is a body funded by insurers to compensate victims in cases where the driver at fault has no insurance or cannot be traced. However you still have to show that the driver was at fault.
