Understanding Contributory Negligence

Many persons involved in accidents often wonder, “Can I still recover compensation if I was partially at fault for the accident?” The answer to this question may vary. According to Nebraska negligence laws, if a plaintiff is equally negligent as her or his defendant, he or she may not be able to recover any damages. However, if the plaintiff is considered less negligent than the other driver is or the plaintiff is completely faultless, he or she may be able to recover monetary compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical therapy costs
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Lost wages

Because each accident case is completely different, it is important for accident victims to contact experienced legal advocacy right away.
