Charlotte Attorney Calls on North Carolina Senate to Pass "Comparative Negligence" Bill in Order to Better Protect Injury Victims in State
Date:7/23/2009

This doctrine is essentially a denial of access to justice for these folks."

Bills to change the state's negligence standards have been pushed and failed since the mid-1980s, but a bill sponsored by Rep. Blust passed the House in May. The bill is now under consideration by the Senate.

Supporters of H813 - the "Uniform Apportionment of Tort Responsibility" Act - argue that North Carolina should switch to a system in which fault is apportioned out to each party in a negligence case. So in the case of a $100,000 settlement, an injured party who was found to be 10 percent responsible for her accident would only be paid $90,000. Under the present law as it exists in North Carolina, this injured plaintiff would receive nothing.
