What is Modified Comparative Negligence in Connecticut Car Accident Cases?

Car Accident Connecticut

Connecticut follows a rule called Modified Comparative Negligence to determine fault in car accident cases. According to this rule, you may be eligible to collect damages only if you are less than 50% at fault in causing the accident. If the court decides that you are more than 50% at fault, you will not be able to collect any compensation.
