Comparative Negligence in Accidents

Connecticut Law allows a person injured in an accident to recover damages even if that person shares fault for the accident. This is called “comparative negligence.” In cases that involve comparative negligence, a judge or jury assesses the fault of all parties involved and assigns a percentage share of fault to each person. Under modified comparative fault, a plaintiff who is 50 percent or less at fault for the accident may collect damages from other parties after their own share of liability is subtracted from the total damages.

For example, if the amount of total damages is $10,000 and the injured person (plaintiff) bringing the lawsuit is determined to be 30 percent negligent for the accident then their award is reduced by 30 percent. Thus, the injured person would collect just $7,000. If the jury determines that the injured person is 51 percent or more to blame for their accident, they cannot recover anything.

If you are wondering if your contribution to the accident will impact any damage award you may be entitled, then you need the help of a knowledgeable Bridgeport personal injury attorney.
