Contributory negligence is an older law that limits the compensation you can receive from your personal injury claim. Contributory negligence prevents you from being compensated for your injuries if you contributed in any way to your injuries.
At the moment, only a few states in the country continue to uphold contributory negligence laws. North Carolina is one of those states. South Carolina, however, has comparative negligence.
