Q
I was hurt in a Virginia car accident, but the defense might have cause to believe I was contributorily negligent. Can they prove that?

A
If a defendant says that you're contributorily negligent as his defense, then the burden of proof falls upon him to demonstrate exactly how you, as the plaintiff, were also instrumental in the accident, and that your negligence was either a direct or close cause of your sustained injuries.
