Who Is Liable for a Car Accident?
In Nebraska, the party that is responsible for causing an accident is known as the "negligent" party. In a car accident, the negligent party is typically the driver who made a mistake that resulted in causing an accident. There are three main types of car accident liability in Nebraska:
- Negligence per se: This type of negligence involves driving with a suspended or revoked license. In Nebraska, driving with a suspended or revoked license is considered negligence per se, meaning that the driver can be held liable for causing an accident without having to prove that they were negligent.
- Negligence: This type of liability involves proving that the driver was negligent in some way. For example, if a driver runs a red light and hits another car, they can be found liable for negligence.
- Comparative negligence: Comparative negligence is a modified version of the traditional "fault" system. Under this system, an injured party can recover compensation if they are found to be partially at fault for causing an accident. The comparative negligence system is used in Nebraska.
