You may have played a role in causing your injury. If that’s the case, you may still be able to recover under Ohio law. As long as you’re not more to blame than the defendant, you can recover for a proportional share of what you would have recovered otherwise.
This system is called comparative negligence.
Ohio follows comparative negligence law, which allows an injured party to seek compensation for injuries even if they were partly responsible for the accident. This is a vast improvement from the old contributory negligence law. That old law held that an injured party could not collect damages if they were even one percent at fault.
The jury then gets to decide how to assign fault among the people involved in the case.
