Under California’s comparative fault doctrine in strict liability cases, the amount of compensation you can recover is limited by the percentage of your own negligence or fault. In other words, you are entitled to the percentage of fault for which the defendant is responsible.

The Allegiance Law from San Francisco product liability attorney explains that when more than one party is at fault for causing injuries, the jury will apportion responsibility based on each of the parties’ negligence.
