Comparative Fault Bill Passes NC House
As the Rocky Mountain Telegram (AP)reports, a bill that would change North Carolina to a comparative fault jurisdiction passed the NC House last week. North Carolina is currently a contributory negligence jurisdiction. Under the bill, North Carolina would become a modified comparative fault jurisdiction, where the plaintiff would recover only if she is less than 50% at fault. (If found 50% at fault, the plaintiff would still recover nothing).
