The Law of Comparative Negligence
The purpose of this course is to better equip you in your professional activities as an Insurance Agent or Insurance Adjuster.
This course reviews the Law of Comparative Negligence. Comparative negligence states that when an accident occurs, the fault and/or negligence of each party involved is based upon their respective contributions to the accident. This allows insurers to assign blame and pay insurance claims accordingly. Negligence per se will be discussed as will be “comparative fault”. In this course you will study: pure comparative negligence, the modified forms of comparative negligence, and contributory negligence. As with our other “The Law Of” courses there are numerous case studies to provide the underpinning of the legal doctrine.
This course makes a few assumptions about you the student:
