Comparative Negligence

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

A type of negligence where both the plaintiff and defendant share some of the fault for an accident or other incident. In a lawsuit, it means that both parties have contributed to the subject harm or loss by failing to meet the required standards of performance or care.

This may be compared to contributory negligence, where any money damages a plaintiff receives from a lawsuit may be reduced proportionate to his or her amount of contributed negligence.
