    Understanding Contributory Negligence

    In any personal injury case, there’s the claimant (the person injured), and the defendant (the person or entity responsible for those injuries). In many instances, the defendant will use a defence of contributory negligence in an attempt to avoid having to compensate, in part or in full, the claimant for their injuries. Contributory negligence is applicable when the claimant is found to have contributed to their injury in some way. Since courts may split liability between both parties, it’s important for claimants to work with a personal injury lawyer who can act as an advocate on their behalf and fight for their right to receive maximum compensation.
