Negligence occurs when someone fails to use reasonable care in a situation—and that failure results in harm done to another person. In order for an accident victim to receive compensation for their injuries, they must first prove the negligent actions of another driver caused the accident in which they were injured.

What is Modified Comparative Negligence?
Even if you are partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to seek compensation for your injuries. That’s because Connecticut uses a system of Modified Comparative Negligence. Modified Comparative Negligence determines negligence based on the percentage of fault. As long as a judge or jury decides at least 51% of the responsibility for an accident lies with the other driver, you can still collect damages or compensation.
How Is Compensation Decided?
The amount of compensation you can receive for injuries suffered in a car accident depends on the distribution of fault between you and the other driver. Cases of Modified Comparative Negligence can be hard to prove without experience in this area of the law. Having an experienced car accident lawyer on your side will help. The right attorney can gather appropriate evidence to help ensure the percentage of fault is placed correctly.
Through careful preparation and attention to detail, Carter Mario Law Firm will make sure you get the compensation you need to cover medical bills and other injury-related expenses.
