Toledo Car Accident Lawyer Dennis E. Sawan Explains Modified Comparative Negligence
After a car accident or injury, it is very common for the parties to argue about liability. Every state employs a different manner of deciding when an injured party is barred from bringing suit when they are partially at fault. Ohio utilizes what is called modified comparative fault. This means that so long as an injured party is not found to be more than 50% liable, the other party must pay. However, if a trier of fact finds the injured party more than 50% responsible, they have no right to recover.
