Oftentimes we meet the term “comparative negligence” when determining who is liable for recovering damages for caused personal injuries. Generally, comparative negligence indicates the fault of the liable parties upon the degree of their carelessness to the accident. For example, comparative negligence in an auto accident may relate to the headlamp, broken lights in the street or tail lights.
Thus, comparative negligence laws declares how the liable parties involved an accident must share the responsibility for an accident which caused bodily or property damages. When there are two parties contributed to the accident, according to comparative negligence laws they must cover compensation for losses pursuant to the degree of their carelessness.
How Can Comparative Negligence Be Resolved?
The injured party may try to negotiate with the liable party until they come to a common ground or until the parties reach an impasse. If it is impossible to reach a settlement, that is the court who determines the degree of comparative negligence.
