Put my 25 years of trial experience defending personal injury claims to work for you. I know how to defend cases, which means I know how to win them.”

~John Fox, Philadelphia Trial Lawyer

What is Negligence and What is Comparative Negligence?

Negligence is when a defendant had a duty to the plaintiff, the defendant breached that duty, and the breach was either a cause-in-fact or a proximate cause to the damages incurred by the plaintiff.  In order to distinguish between negligence and intentional torts, the state of mind during the conduct must be willful, wanton, and reckless.  It is also usually defined as consisting of a deliberate and conscious disregard for a known high degree of probability of harm to another.

Each state either rules by Contributory Negligence, or Comparative Negligence.  Pennsylvania is a Comparative Negligence Jurisdiction, which is plaintiff friendly.  Comparative Negligence means that a plaintiff can be up to 50% responsible for an accident and still collect damages in a Pennsylvania personal injury claim. If a plaintiff is more than 50% responsible for an accident, the plaintiff is not able to recover compensation for his or her accident expenses. This is because Pennsylvania follows the modified comparative negligence – 51% rule.

So what does Comparative Negligence mean for you, the plaintiff?  Even if you are partially at fault in an accident where you suffered injuries, you can still recover for your injuries.
