Q: What is comparative negligence?

A: Comparative negligence occurs when both parties are comparatively negligent in causing an accident. For instance, if one individual is driving too fast in a rain storm and another is driving without their windshield wipers on just before an accident, this would be an example of comparative negligence. If both individuals fail to act as a responsible people would, the result is comparative negligence.
