In personal injury litigation, there are numerous tables and tools for calculating awards based on injuries. In practice, many such awards are mitigated by the actions of the claiment in contributing to their own injury. This is a collection of cases and circumstances, organized by type of case. Judges, practitioners and insurance companies should find this useful to quickly identify similar facts and the percentage of contributory negligence that is reasonable.

The text covers key areas including: general principles; standard of care; causation; contributory negligence of those other than the claiment; causes of action other than negligence; accidents at work; assaults; children; product liability; and self harm.
