It is important to note that California is a pure comparative negligence state.
This means that in California, a person injured in an accident can still recover damages even when they are partially to blame for the accident.
In a personal injury case, the jury will decide what percentage of the plaintiff's (the person bringing the lawsuit) own negligence contributed to the injuries. If the plaintiff was partially responsible for their own harm, the damages award will be reduced by the plaintiff's percentage of fault.
California allows injured parties to collect damages (money) even if they are 99% at fault for an accident.
