Comparative negligence

A rule used in negligence cases in some states that provides for computing both the plaintiffs and the defendant’s negligence, with the plaintiffs damages being reduced by a percentage representing the degree of his or her contributing fault. If the plaintiff’s negligence is found to be greater than the defendant’s, the plaintiff will receive nothing and will be subject to a counter claim by the defendant.
