New York State is a comparative negligence jurisdiction. When an accident in New York State is caused by the defendant’s negligence, even if the injured plaintiff was partially at fault, the plaintiff is entitled to recover monetary damages for the injuries sustained (subject to the “serious injury threshold” for New York State motor vehicle accidents), however the damages will be reduced by the plaintiff’s percentage of fault.
