SPLIT LIABILITY IN TRAFFIC AND SOME DILEMMAS IN BUSINESS AND JUDICIAL PRACTICE
In civil procedures, nobody is held liable for his/her own
damage. Injured persons are not liable for their own damage, and bear only their own contribution to the occurrence
or its aggravation.
In terms of split liability, the court takes into consideration only the facts presented in the course of procedure. If, during the procedure, the defendant does not file a complaint on the grounds of split liability, that is, if he/she does not point out the claimant’scontribution to the occurrence, then the defendant will be liable for the whole damage.
