What Is Negligence in Law?
Negligence can be explained in its most basic form as a failure to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to another — a driver was supposed to be paying attention, but decided look away and text or got distracted, or was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, didn’t get enough sleep, or was driving too fast during poor weather, etc.
How assigning fault in negligence cases works
There are occasions where a plaintiff and defendant may both have acted negligently and will share a percentage of fault for a crash. If you were rear-ended, but you were speeding when it happened, that could be an example where you would share a percentage of fault for the accident.
Each state adopts their own individual model of how their courts determine fault. Isaacs & Isaacs adheres to these mandated models in each of the states we serve:
- Kentucky – Pure Comparative Negligence
Ohio – Modified Comparative Negligence – 51% Rule
Indiana – Modified Comparative Negligence – 51% Rule
