Car Accidents in Texas
Car accidents are reported far too often in Texas. Each year, hundreds of thousands of collisions take place on our roadways. These accidents leave tens of thousands of people injured. In many cases, victims have to go through extensive medical treatment for the injuries they suffer.
After being hurt in a car crash, victims have the ability to pursue a legal claim against those responsible. In order to recover fair compensation, victims must be able to demonstrate that negligence existed. However, it is important to note that awards for personal injury claims in Texas are provided based on the loss of comparative negligence.
What is Comparative Negligence in Texas?
In Texas, comparative negligence is a legal concept applied in car accident cases to determine the extent of each party’s responsibility for the incident. Under this system, the compensation awarded to an injured party may be reduced based on their own percentage of fault in the accident.
Texas follows a modified comparative negligence rule, where an injured party can still recover damages as long as their responsibility does not exceed 51%. If it does, they may be barred from recovering any compensation. It’s crucial to understand the implications of comparative negligence in Texas after a car crash, and the complexities involved in determining fault percentages.
