At one point, a plaintiff who in some amount contributed to his own injury recovered nothing. The Supreme Court of California found the result harsh. A person who is 99% responsible for the harm of others would have an absolute defense. The Supreme Court of California ruled that almost all accidents, all negligent torture, were the result of negligent acts by both parties.
The Supreme Court of California confirmed in Li v. Yellow Cab a system called comparative negligence in which the jury was instructed to determine the percentage of liability attributable to both parties. for a sporting or other activity covered by the doctrine. A person who voluntarily and deliberately exposes himself to obvious dangers is considered to have taken the risk of injury. It is not contributory negligence. It is more like consent to the action. The defendant's conduct entails certain dangers or risks, which the plaintiff voluntarily accepts.
Last Clear Chance
The defense of "last clear chance" is an exception to the defense of contributory negligence. Since 1975, it has undergone comparative neglect.
