New York, NY – January 10, 2024 – Daniella Levi & Associates P.C., a leading legal firm specializing in personal injury cases, is pleased to shed light on the intricate legal concept of “Contributory Negligence” in New York. This press release explores the nuances of comparative negligence, the pure comparative fault system, and its implications for accident victims.

Unraveling the Legal Landscape

Understanding the principles of negligence in personal injury law is crucial. Courts use comparative negligence to determine the extent to which each party involved in an accident is responsible for the damages. It ensures that victims can still recover damages even if they bear some responsibility for an incident when multiple parties contribute to it.

New York’s Pure Comparative Fault System

New York, like many states, follows a pure comparative fault system. If an accident victim is primarily responsible for the incident, they may still be able to claim damages for the percentage they are not at fault. Essentially, a plaintiff may recover 1% of damages even if they are found to be 99% at fault. This system is unique and sets New York apart from other states, such as California and Florida, which also follow the pure comparative negligence rule.

Implications for Accident Victims

The implications of New York’s pure comparative fault system are profound for accident victims. It ensures that individuals who may bear some responsibility for an accident can still seek compensation for their injuries and losses. This system recognizes that accidents are rarely black and white, and often involve shared fault among multiple parties.

In contrast, other states follow modified comparative negligence rules, where plaintiffs are barred from recovering damages if they are found to be 50% or more at fault (50 percent bar rule) or 51% or more at fault (51 percent bar rule). New York’s approach is more lenient and favors accident victims.
