Comparative negligence allows an injured person to recover damages for their injuries even if their actions contributed to the accident. Under comparative negligence the judge or jury will decide the percentage of blame for each person involved in the accident and allocate damages accordingly. Certain states use a variety of comparative negligence systems including: pure comparative negligence, modified comparative negligence – 51% rule, or modified comparative negligence – 50% rule.
