Q: What does the legal term "comparative negligence" really mean? Can it help to determine who is legally liable for a bus accident?

A: “Comparative negligence” is a legal “term of art” lawyers and judges used when they describe how to divide the legal liability for any accident between different drivers based on each driver’s recklessness in causing any accident. A percentage of the fault for the accident is given to each of the drivers and if and when damages get awarded, these exact percentages can be one basis of who pays whom and how much they pay. If and when a bus is involved, some simple examples of “comparative negligence” are: an intoxicated or fatigued driver operating the bus, if all the parts and equipment on the bus functioned as intended, and if anyone disobeyed the traffic laws. Some combination of these and/or other fault factors may cause the court to distribute “negligence” and liability to all the parties found responsible.
