Car accidents are commonplace occurrences in the United States. While many of these accidents will leave their victims unscathed, millions of others are not often so lucky. The National Safety Council in a 2019 survey, estimated that 38,800 people died in car crashes in 2019 and about 4.4 million people sustained serious injuries.
Most car accidents are caused by the actions or inactions of drivers on the road. As a road user, you have a duty to drive on the road in a reasonably safe manner – as do other drivers. Unfortunately, not every driver takes this duty seriously. The unavoidable result of this is the occurrence of car accidents on the road.
Injuries sustained in car accidents can range from slight to severe, life-altering, or even death. If you or your loved one suffered injuries or wrongful death as a result of a car accident, you may be entitled to file a claim for compensation.

The Comparative negligence law states that when a car accident occurs, liability is determined by the degree of fault that each person bears. Consider the following scenario: Ben is driving down Independence Avenue to link the County Highway. Morgan is driving down the highway and moving at a high rate of speed. As Ben was approaching the highway, his phone rang and he took his eyes off the road to pick the call. Unknown to him, he had nosed his way onto the highway.
Morgan, coming at high speed, did not have enough time to hit the brakes. He hit Ben on the driver’s side and Ben suffered some serious injuries. Morgan, on the other hand, escaped without a scratch because the airbag deployed.
In the scenario painted above, both drivers were at fault – Ben, for driving while distracted, and, Morgan, for driving at excessive speeds. Under comparative negligence, the jury will calculate how much of the blame is Ben’s and how much is Morgan’s. If Ben is found to be more than 50% at fault, he will not be compensated for his personal injuries. If he is found to be less than 50% at fault, the percentage of fault that is Ben’s will be deducted from the compensation he will be awarded. Thus, if the jury awards Ben $100,000 in compensation and he is found to be 25% at fault, he will get $75,000.
