Contributory Negligence

This is a harsh rule in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia that states if the injured victim of a car accident was at fault for the accident, they will recover nothing for their medical bills, pain and suffering. Even if they were only 1% at fault for the accident they recover nothing. Contributory negligence is an absolute bar to recovery.
