How do comparative and contributory negligence differ?

In the civil justice system of South Carolina, the court bases any personal injury or tort case on fault or negligence. Different states have adopted various doctrines to apply when it comes to awarding monetary judgments, with comparative negligence and contributory negligence being the two primary types of fault. Although South Carolina uses a version of the comparative negligence system, some neighboring states use the contributory doctrine.
