Video Transcription

New Jersey is a comparative negligence state which means that if you were in an accident and the accident is partially as a result of your fault, then what the jury does in a case is decide what percentage of the fault was yours and what percentage was the other driver, and then they would apportion the damages suffered by you, dependent upon that percentage of liability that the defendant was responsible for so in an accident in New Jersey, the defendant has to be atleast 50% liable for you to recover any damages in that circumstance.
