I need to compare and contrast contributory negligence with comparative negligence.
Please check what I have so far and let me know what I may need to and or take a way etc thanks so much for your help
Both contributory and comparative negligence deals with the fact the the negligence of the defendant is not in doubt meaning that it has already proven by the plaintiff. The maain diffrence between the two is with comparative negliggence an attempt to conpensate the plintiff for some portion of their injury even if it is for a small amount, however contributory negligence is used to bar an injury award completely.
Please use a spell check to catch several misspelled words. Also -- the verb in your first sentence should be "deal" not "deals."
