Wash. Rev. Code § 4.22.005

Current with changes from the 2021 Regular Session effective on or before 7/1/2021
Section 4.22.005 - Effect of contributory fault

In an action based on fault seeking to recover damages for injury or death to person or harm to property, any contributory fault chargeable to the claimant diminishes proportionately the amount awarded as compensatory damages for an injury attributable to the claimant's contributory fault, but does not bar recovery. This rule applies whether or not under prior law the claimant's contributory fault constituted a defense or was disregarded under applicable legal doctrines, such as last clear chance.
